Doing another build for a friend, this time a 4 string neck through bass. Quite a few new things for me on this one, so will be fun and going to try really hard not to mess anything up. The goal for the bass is to be super unique in wood options, design, and electronics versatile enough to "play anything". Comments and critique welcome! Details: Style: 4 string neck through Scale: 35" Thickness: 1.5" (might start thicker to see the balance first, then plane it down if ok) Bridge: Kahler Tremolo Tuners: Sperzel locking Pickups: Nordstrand Fat Stacks Electronics: Audere Pro Z pre-amp - 5 knob (I think) plus adding coil splitting switches Body: Multi layered - Purpleheart/Wenge/Maple Top: Claro Walnut Neck: 5 piece, Purpleheart/Wenge (accents) Fret board: Pale Moon Ebony Inlays: luminlay side dots Head Stock: Probably leave the laminate showing through Nut: Black Tusq XL Frets: 24 stainless 51/100 Truss Rod: Spoke wheel at neck pocket (still trying to source something other than the SM Hotrod) Finish: epoxy/satin poly - smooth finish The design is completely new and highly inspired by Carl Thompson with a few twists. Still making a few tweaks, but it has been approved for construction. The Sketchup is still a bit crude for electronics placement, drawing that out on the actual print out with my cavity templates for final placement. Headstock will also be rounded a bit more than pictured. Glued the top: Spent a day re-setting up my band saw and calibrating it correctly (cuts much cleaner and straighter now). Then did some test cuts on scrap before the neck pieces. also bought a decent hand plane to clean them up and in the process of doing that now. Wenge first. Cut the Purpleheart, then a quick mockup with the fretboard. Now back to planing, then gluing. I bought some polyurethane glue to use for oily woods this round.
