  1. Navarone.45-43"multiscale headless

    Well..in my 40" scale p-bass,i have made a very stiff neck.Basevall but is nothing in front of this neck. But the stiffer the neck is,the harder you adjust it.We need strong,but elastic necks so we can set up our instrument easy. If it become so strong and stiff,the strings will not have the power to give the relief i need and i will have to use the truss rod to bow the neck and not to straighten it. Anyway,this is an experimental bass,so any failure is into the program from the first day this build started

    I think that thicker fretboard makes the truss rod work more dificult and dont let the sttings make a bow to the neck

    I need help. I am planing to use 3 layer fretboard.Wenge,maple,wenge.Each layer 3mm thick.The final thickness will be 9mm.Is this ok or is it to much?The fretboard will be flat,no radius.

    4.860 kg I hope in the end will be 4.500,but if not,less than 5 kg is fine if you think the huge scale..

    I have glue the down "wing" of the body,and cut the control cavity plate. Now the body is ready for paint.Only the pot holes are not open.I will do them at the end. Now i can do serious work with the neck

    C'mon guys..the magic is in the B..actually the open B..

    the progress of the last week i have made contour in the backside and open holes in the body to lose weight,then glued the top. you can also see the high difference because of the torzal.But these peaks will be cut later as the line of the pen in the last pic shows

    I am not a pioneer.Multiscale basses exist,headless basses exist,torzal basses exist..i just put all these in one single bass

    If my english were good,it would be more easier to understand,because i could explain better

    First of all,its my honor that bass players and builders are talking about my bass. In the end of the build i will thank all the people that helped me with this,because behind of this build,are so many great guys hidden,who helped me with their knowledge I will see if i can edit the earlier posts and upload again the pictures. This bass,actually,is not an ergonomic bass. The 2 main reasons,are dimensions and weight. If a person need ergonomic bass,he must look for max 30" scale.The smaller the scale,the smaller the frets,and easier to play This bass because of the bigger scale,have more wood than a common bass guitar and that means it weights more. I will try to make 36mm body thickness to lose weight. I am not a luthier,just a DIYer. In the beginning,i wanted to build a multiscale.Also a headless.So,i make the decision to build a multiscale-headless. From my previous 40" build,i know that if a bass be longer than 40",the wrist on the left hand is gonna be i difficult position.So it must be torzal neck. I choose to put all these in one single build,just for the fun and the challenge to see if i can make it. There are still things that i didn't know how i will do,but as the build is going on,i see what it will be nice or good,and do it. Tha playing positions are these at the pictures.The neck is angled,but there is nothing to rest the right hand like the normal basses,which i like,but there are so many players,that don't rest their right hand on the bass

    Neck sanding is over.Now i have to build the body and then give the final edges to the neck,where body and neck met etch other and then glue the fretboard
  14. Navarone.45-43"multiscale headless
