For those of you who wanted to follow this blog, Im updating it from my main blog on wordpress. This project has taught me a great deal, and Im eager to share my journey. The failures, complete changes in my methods, and sucesses, each provide a glimpse of just how different luthierie is from building cabinets and furniture. The post below, “Kill the Treble” was the first from my blog www.the7thfret.wordpress.com
Kill the Treble February 28, 2012
This is the first of hopefully many posts about making bass guitars. I’ve decided to provided insight on the purpose of this journey on the “about” page. My first bass is a 4 string, with a Honduras mahogany core, and a walnut top. The finger board is wenge, followed by a headstock veneer of either walnut, or zebra wood. The work will be done as I can get to it, so day 1 to-day 2 might be a week apart, hopefully not but just so you know. Happy Thumping!
