Inspired by BassChair I mustered up enough courage to build a bass totally from scratch. Some may remember my rebuild of an SX 5 string which was ok but it was like buying a kit which is kinda a joke to me - ANYWAY - My goal is to build a 5 string with set neck , multiple body and neck laminations. I ordered a dual truss rod from Allparts, jazz single coil pickups from carvin, various other parts from ebay to be shown later. Also thumbs up to the guys at Owl Hardwoods in Oak Lawn and Des Plaines, Illinois!!!
