    Well one of my roomates has been generous to donate some of the black walnut that was cut down in our yard recently to me. I am thinking about having my other roommate construct my dream bass. I don't know too much about what woods would sound good with the black walnut and which ones would look cool with it. I was thinking about adding purpleheart somewhere maybe in the neck and top for support. My other question is about electronics. I really think that i want a soapbar pickup but i don't know the difference between musicman and regular soapbar. I like the idea of a jazz and a soapbar also. Too many choices these days!
