    25” mini

    I am already thinking I might go 17.5" scale after watching the Basstheworld Mayones mini video with Ida Nielssen. I have a left over TC SubnUp Mini.... now imagine if I would build that into the cavity

    Thanks, but I have several soapbars in my “spares” draw. So am pretty well sorted.

    25” mini

    So after I built a 30” for my eldest son, now my 6 year old is asking for a bass. As it is well possible, even likely, that they will not pick up playing long-term I need to build something I could use as well. So why not build a mini Looking at the scraps I have left over it will be a swamp ash/dark ash/walnut laminate body (8mm strips and plenty wood glue), neck thru maple/wenge/maple 25” scale (maybe 24”), with a single soapbar pickup. He wants a blue & red bass .... ehm okay. This will be a slow build.
  6. As Borat would say, “very nice”
  7. Thank you Tony, appreciate the comment especially since you know a th8ng or 2 about fretless basses.
  8. Quick sound snippet..... Infinite Bass 5 FL.mp3
  9. I enjoy this thread, tinkering with wood is always a joy to watch.
  10. Thanks, much appreciated. I still need to finetune before I can fully answer that question. But first impressions are very positive. Today I worked on the nut (needed to sit a little deeper) and sorted the string height out. After everything has settled (give it a week or two) I will tweak again and record something. Thus far I am very happy, the wenge fretboard gives it a warmer rounder sound than my Status necked fretless. Acoustically it resonates well and there is ample “mwaah”. More pics and sound bites will come
  11. Still all the tweaking to do, but it is a bass....
  12. Love this solution! I went the easy option and bought a brass nut, but this is a really neat and clever solution.
  13. Poor poor soul, I really feel for you 😂 Well done so far!
