Whats up guys, I'm going to be attempting my first build this summer. I will have about 14 weeks off between 6th form and university. I want to build a 6 string bass and I have not done too much serious planning other that > It will be fretless so I don't need to do metal work or worry about intonation. > It will be 34" > 6 strings > 90% decided I want to build it through neck because that looks fun as hell, but at the same time there is 10% that wants me to have a strandberg body shape. > I want to make it light as hell, by shoulder sucks and I already own two heavy as fuk basses (I will make it out of cork if I have to ) > I have a tingling to make it hollow bodied with a cut in the top like some dingwall basses, but that might be a bit much for a first build, but then again I have 14 weeks The big thing is that I have no experience and I probably have minus experience in electronics so I will not be installing pickups right away. I am going to build the bass and sort the bridge and all that first, if time is looking good, I will buy a pickup and install it. I'm not too fussed about it to be honest, I play unplugged 98% of the time. Any recommendations?
