Hey guys, its been QUITE a long time since I've been able to post because I've been grounded . But its good to be back . I've been reading alot on how to build basses and the types of things I would need to know, and just recently the art teacher at my school who is interested in guitars and building them decided he wanted to start a guitar building club. Naturally I jumped at the chance to build my own bass, but its come time for me to pick my woods and I'm kind of at a standstill. I told him I'd like a bubinga body, with maybe a wenge neck, but hes dead set on using maple, and the place he goes to get the wood doesn't know if they can get me any bubinga, so I was wondering what another good sounding/looking wood is that would go well with a maple neck, and rosewood fretboard(again not really my choice but due to the teacher and money right now its what I have to go with). My teacher suggested Walnut, and I thought it might be a good idea, but I figured I'd better ask on here because you guys know ALOT about this stuff. Anyways now that I've rambled on, any and all help would be GREATLY appreciated, and a big thank you in advance. Jared EDIT: I thought I better add some stuff too this as well, I'll be building a 6 string bass with a 36" scale, its also going to be neck through body, as well as string through body type bridge.
