I was originally thinking of making a bass at some point that I was going to base off my Peavey T-40. Then I started thinking, why not make a smaller one I could travel with (I go to Finland every summer for around 5 weeks)? I've made some sketches and I'm working on a rough 1/8 inch scale drawing. I'll scan it when I'm done. This is what I've planned so far. 30 inch scale, 18 frets; Maple neck (through body) and fretboard, walnut wings; single blade pickup I'm planning on making, one volume knob; possibly a homemade bridge (string through body) I would like this to be a more simple project than the original one I planned (http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=403180). Maybe if I get it done before July, I'll take it to Finland with me. I also might have the possibility to make at least some parts of this in my construction class. So any suggestions or advice?
