I haven't posted much here in a while and happened to be working on a bass for my friend lately. I figured I'd take advantage of the fact I'm actually working on a bass and put together a step by step thing on how I carve a top. For the record there are easier ways to do it, this is just how I like to. First thing is get your body put together, shaped and lay out where you want everything to go. Next up I route the pickups cavities and in this case recess the bridge.
