    Hello fellow talkbass-ers!

    I've been searching around here for a little bit looking at ideas/information on building and every time I get on I learn something new. You all are awesome.

    I've been thinking of selling the next bass I build and wondering, how would I go about starting a legal part-time business with an output of maybe 2-3 instruments a year max...if even that? I'm good with the technical tasks because of my CS background but do not know much about the business aspect of things. :help:

    Good luck!

    If you are serious about this being a business then find your nearest chapter of SCORE and go talk to them.
    They'll get you straight about your business plan and structure, taxes, insurance... Otherwise it's just a hobby.

    See the templates and tools section on the website for some starting info and questions you will want to get answered. Good Luck!
