Hi guys, I’m fed up with filing 6 nut slots so have we got any acoustic bass builders out there who might be able to point me in the direction of good plans or just share with me some hints and tips?

Cheers

Darren

@darrenking

I found this web site a while ago, it gives plans as digital download loads.

Some people call me a tool, others are less complimentary. Tools being useful things.

Hi @rocknroller

Thanks for the link. This company used to trade as Georgia Luthier and the first two guitars I built were from their Grand Symphony plans. I was very impressed by the amount of information supplied, certainly compared with some other plans I've bought since, so I will probably download the one for the acoustic bass and have a good read.

Cheers

Darren

That'd be an interesting project ... and for a man of your skills ...
