Question for Bass builders and Luthiers

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by bassistjedi, Mar 13, 2002.


  1. I would like to build my own bass, but I don't feel comfortable making my own neck. Would anyone who has been successful in making thier own neck be willing to make a neck for me? Warmoth is too expensive for my budget. I would like to keep the cost as low as possible. What is the cheapest I could get a neck made for?

    What I am looking for is a 34" scale 4 string bolt on neck made very similar to the gibson or epiphone 2+2. Fingerboard material isn't too important to me but I would like a lined fretless. Please let me know if anyone can do this for cheap or if I am crazy.

    Thanks,

    E-mail me with some specs, (nut width, width at 20th fret, 'Same as a xxxx Bass', etc.)... I'm getting ready to knock out a few, so we could probably work out something...
