I have thought about trying to build a bassic bass. Mostly to see how the magic works in building such a wonderful creation such as a bass is. My biggest fear is the neck, mostly the finger board and fretwork. Is there a place where you can can get premade fretboards, slotted and ready for frets?? Is it even possible to have a fretboard like this glued on to the neck after its been slotted?? Is it practical? Also what are some bassics that one can do to prepare. Suggestions for tools, designs(bolt on vs neck thru), books etc. Thanx!!
