Hey all! I'm about to start building a bass. This is my first time and I'm doing it with my father, and we are probably going to do it slow. Anyway, we are going to build it from the local woods so I need to ask you about the wood types. I tried to find info but couldn't find much. I'm thinking of making the body from pine (pinus sylvestris is the one that grows here in finland) and with some other top. And maybe slice of spruce. The neck will be birch with rosewood fretboard. I haven't decided if it's fretted or fretless. Or any other details, for what it's worth. So the question is will those woods work? I'm looking for dark, bassy sound. And of course other tips are welcome. If this is stupid question, please delete this but I would really appreciate the answers, here or by PM. Thanks mates. Will document the process once we will get it under way.
