Ok, so I have mapped out plans for most of the instrument. Some things are still uncertain, but you'll see. 4 string 35 scale ('cause I like tight string tension) lined fretless Body: 1 piece black walnut, assuming I can find a piece the proper size. Rear routed. Neck: Maple, perhaps birseye If I can find a nice hard piece. (should I make it a laminated neck? I really don't know) Ebony fingerboard. Pickups: I don't know. I think I may go with some J variation. I want a singing tone from it for that fretlessness. Nordstrand? Barts? I'm also going to make the bridge pup slanted, and maybe the neck one too. Pan/vol/tone knobs are what I'd prefer. Neck pocket is going to be 4-bolt, but other than that I have no details. I plan to model the neck after my Ibanez, but I might change my mind and model it after my P. Bridge: I think I might want to get monorail saddles, just to make it easy to do the string spacing right. I have some pics of the plans, and one of the prototype headstock (in progress) next to the planned headstock. It's made of bloodwood, but the real one will be made of walnut then slapped on the neck at about a 15 degree angle or so. It's good practice.
