    I,m getting ready to build neck through 4 string bass. (my first attempt at a neck through). The neck will be 5 piece maple and walnut. The walnut is 1/4" thick and the maple is 3/4" thick. The body will have a face plate of Pomele Sapele, still haven't decided on the wood for the back of the body. Pick ups will be Bartolini BC4CBC-B and BC4BC-T. Are there any pit falls I should know about or is it pretty much like a bolt on neck. Other than measure 3 times and cut once. Thanks Tom
