    Semi Hollow Bass (and another two...)

    I’ve now received the wood I’m going to use for the second neck. I’ve got some plain maple and a piece of birds eye maple - so birds eye it is! Same as the other one with an ebony board. I’m looking to make the neck as a 30” short scale this time. Only fly in the ointment is my bloody leaky pipe in kitchen saga is still going on and preventing me from getting on with this. It’s really getting frustrating now....

    Another Swift Lite Bass

    That top looks lovely! Will you have handed this over to the owner before the Bass Bash next year?

    South East Bass Bash No.12, Saturday 29th September 2018!

    Thanks for all your work Silvia and to everyone else involved in organising this event. I've got to say thanks again to everyone for the positive feedback I got for my basses. I was quite overwhelmed especially for the comments I got in the blind test in which, for info, I scored 1 and that wasn't my own bass..... See you all again next year!

    That's why I'm sorting the kitchen.....

    New Body

    @bflat You could always try getting a body made that is chambered to lose quite a bit of weight. I'm not entirely sure with an electric instrument exactly what how much of the tone relates to the electronics or the woods - that debate will continue to run!! For info regarding weight, I recently made a semi hollow bass (thread is in this forum) with a maple body and walnut top. I don't normally weigh everything but I did this time and the body came in at 1.230kg. The only downside of this is keeping the balance of the bass on the knee as there is less weight to counterbalance the neck. Cheers

    Cheers @Norris!! Just trying to get my kitchen project finished (which is turning into bit of a saga) so I can crack on with the spalted beech one. What are you building now?

    Neck carving - what do you use and how do you do it?

    That's what I'm hoping - I bought it for carving transitions like this. I'll post back with my comments, but looks a promising tool. And it's sharp....

    Cheers for all the comments! I've still got to get some proper photos. For info the final weight turned out at 2.7kg so just under 6lb. I've still got a few things to finish off which I'll try to get done over the next week or so. …..and I really like LaBella nylons!
