Okay, let’s get this going! I’ve been down with COVID this week, so I’m a few days late getting started. But I’m hoping this will be a pretty straightforward build. A number of years ago I built my first V bass. Since then I’ve learned quite a few things about building, and about my own personal preferences as well. So it’s time to do another! And to add to the wow factor, this time I’ll be using a Kahler vibrato (the world needs to stop calling them tremolos). Never had one before, should be fun! Wood pile shot: Maple for the body, maybe solid, and maybe chambered with a figured top. Maple/walnut/maple/walnut/maple neck. I forgot to add the Ovangkol fretboard to the photo, slotted by LMII at 33” scale. I’ll have to pick some electronics out of my big box of stuff. Nothing too fancy. Maybe just a single pickup. I can’t decide how to finish it. Part of me wants to do something wacky, and part of me wants to play it safe. TBD. Next up: neck glue-up.
