    i am looking for a book to give me some guidelines for building a bass. I am a decent woodworker,but i've never built an instrument and would like to have something to reference when needed.
    Thanks!:)

    I second Martin Koch!
    To me, that was more informative and more insptrational than Hiscock's.
    Another, simpler but also good, book is the one by Roger Siminoff.

    Another vote for Hiscock (dang, that sounds weird...Probably shouldn't say that out loud...). I found it very helpful.
