Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

    hey, I am in the process of building a custom bass, or still in the planning stages, a double cut les paul flat top, exept not like the gibson bass les paul, the double cut where both horns come out equally, liek the guitar version. anyway, how would i go about carving out the neck pocket for the neck? woudl i just ark it and use a router to shave it? or somthign else idk.
    Thanx for the help

    BTW- The neck is gonna be a warmoth 4 string (fender specs)

  3. I would advice you to buy a book on this topic, cus i'm sure more questions like this is going to come up as you progress.. but to answer your question.. a router and a template is what you need, you could use a pillardrill in advance to save the router some trouble.
