Hi Tim – I’m a far cry from a luthier, but I did build one hard body electric for one of my sons. Someday I’d like to build another. It was a great project and an awesome “journey” cool to learn all that stuff. The internet was a wonderful tool for that project. I’d strongly encourage anyone who’s considered building one to go for it!

Tim, welcome to Ljs

Here are two Bass Guitars I bulit——-

I’ve got 2 more bodies glued up, and hope to get them done before too long. I’d like to do this all the time if I ever get to retire.
