I'm brand new to luthier, I've read practically everything I can find on it in order to understand. Its about time that I sink my teeth into it so I can fully undestand the whole concept. I've had this plan for the past couple of weeks, working on creating a four string, v shaped bass. I understand how to use a bandsaw, when I was younger my uncle and I built birdhouses, but I am fairly new to routing. Furthermore, I am confused on how I would drill a hole from the electronics and pots area to the pickup. Input jacks seem a little easier than this. I intend to make this bass either natural color or black with a creme binding. I understand V's are uncomfortable play, I've already thought that through. I need information on how to go about doing the Nut, and where I can get a neck. I'd rather not build the neck and fingerboard myself, seeing as I'd probably mess it up, though I really wish to get a taste of building bodies for solid body basses. If possible, A little electronics/pups advice would be wonderful. Currently, i intend to use either a single musicman like pickup by Basslines, or two EMG 35 Soapbar shaped pickups with two volume pots (bridge and neck pups if EMG) and a 3 channel eq (3 knobs). Thanks in advance!
