Ok, so I was in the middle of building two 12 strings at the beginning of the year and got completely side tracked by real life. I still plan to finish those, but before I do that I want to build a rick-ish bass for my son and hope to get back into the flow of building. I cleared out space in my basement and finally organized a shop area to work in which should make things much easier going forward. Anyway, I'll just post some pics and describe what I'm attempting. It's not going to be 100% documented, but you'll get the idea. Template cut and body and neck blanks cut ( 2 views ) Neck template ... Body wings cut.... Starting to look right ... Worked on the neck ... Angle the headstock... Not crazy about the headstock bottle opener look. I will probably modified it a bit. Start on fretboard... Cut inlay slots .. Truss rod in and trying a pour method for the inlays with Crystal Clear epoxy. Should get a bunch of parts this week so hopefully I'll post more next week.
