Hey all, I'm wanting to build my own P style bass. Not from the ground up but from buying the separate respective parts, such as pups, tuners, hardware, neck and body, the whole bass, and assembling it myself. I'd like to build a bass along the lines of a fender style and a lakland style P. I've been searching different threads on here but can't seem to find a good direction to go in. There is a lot of threads that start with a block of wood and up. There's sites that I've been to to buy parts but I'd like more direction on assembly and where to find the right parts for the sound and feel I'm looking for. Maybe someone could post a link or a thread that would be helpful it'd be greatly appreciated. I plan on purchasing a couple of books as well. Any suggestions on a book or two on how to build your own bass would be great too. Thanks all! I'd like to stay in the $500 to $700 range on the whole thing.
