I have only one bass, obviously this is a problem, what if it has a problem? I could be stuck without a bass In other words, I feel like making a bass. From scratch. The only way I get into parts builds is when I get at least some of the pieces for close to free e.g. gifts (one can dream) or parts from broken instruments, and I don't happen to have any spare bass part on hand. Are certain basses easier to make from scratch than others? I was thinking about a laminated neck through, does it present particular challenges? Since I'm still working on my first (guitar) neck, it is of course the scariest part of the build. I likely won't get started till the spring, but I'm starting to research "good value" hardware and electronics to put them on my Christmas list. I was thinking about going fancy with the wiring, something like the G&L basses.
