      The problem with builds like this and being paid for it is the many hours it’ll take me to make a body, and the risk of things go wrong.

      It’s real size, and you just have to copy it on a piece of MDF or plywood to get a good template.

      Well, I am no professional builder, just a hobbyist. I will send you the (free) .pdf so you can make a template yourself if you want.

      Ha! Let me clarify: how much would it cost to commission you to build me one like your friend’s :)

        I guess we’re around € 400,- now:

        - second hand Allparts neck with tuners € 180,-
        - one piece abachi wood € 40,-
        - Seymour Duncan pickup € 65,-
        - 2 saddle bridge € 35,- incl. shipping
        - hardware, filler, nitro lacquer € 95,-

        I guess we’ll need an extra € 50,- for clear finish and polishing, and a set of bass strings € 30,-.

        That’s not including the hours I spent ! It’s for a friend, and my first wood body ever.

        So if you plan to build one yourself, I guess tou need to spend about € 500,-. Of course that depends on some choices you have to make: the wood we used is relatively cheap, and so are the pickup and other parts. And we bought the neck second hand.

        But: it’s fun !

        Good luck and show us what you’ve got !
