Yesterday I started on my first bass build.

Wilkinson pickups, bridge and tuners.
Flamed Ash body, maple neck and rosewood fingerboard.

Little mockup shot with the template I 've created yesterday. It still needs to be refined.

It is based on my own guitar template, just altered to the larger radius.
I still need to cut out the headstock template, but it is already drawn.

This build wont go fast I think, as I am planning to do this build in between other jobs.

I ll keep you posted here if I make any progress πŸ˜‰

I will not say anything about Bassists because @Marcel is bigger than me.

And he has more friends.
