“This blog is written on wordpress. In order to catch up my LJ version of this blog Ill be posting a good bit at once, I think about 13 posts, so that both blogs are on course with each other. I started the blog here on LJ and it was titled Bass Blog. Since there I revamped my bass guitar design, felt better about publicizing it progress. Please feel free to comment on either blog. The link to my other blog can be found on my LJ Homepage. for now it is www.the7thfret.wordpress.com
Hope you enjoy.”

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!
