Taking Shape Part 3


I’m entering even more into unknown with construction of the neck. The margin for error here is smaller than a cabinet or piece of furniture. I’m using ribbon striped mahogany, with a couple of strips of cherry for looks and added strength. Each glue surface was carefully planed, and made flat, a little insurance for the unknown factors. I’m basing a lot of dimensions on Carl Thompson basses, he knows a thing or two about making bass guitars. Check out his site and see who plays his basses- http://www.ctbasses.com/
