GCSE RM primary research

Recommended Posts

Hey basschatters,

For my Resistant materials GCSE, I need to conduct some research. I’d love to use the poll system on the forum but unfortunately I can’t add that many questions in one thread and I don’t want to spam the forum. Anyway, if you have the time feel free to just copy and paste the questions below and answer with what you’d prefer on your dream bass.

Cheers for your time,

Jamie

A)Led fretboard or not

 

B)Maple or Wengé fretboard

 

C)Single headless pieces or whole bridge

 

D)Brass or steel string clamp at headstock

 

E)Active or passive 

 

F)3 band or 3 band parametric 

 

G)Oil finish or polyurethane 

 

H)Scale length- 25 or 28 inch

 

I)Bolt on or neck through 

 

J)Truss rod or just carbon support rods

 

K)Out jack on top or side

 

L)Extended fretboard to act as ramp or not

Is this a model we're building? Or is it a bass for toddlers?

I’m bringing back the midget bass series that I never finished. I’ll have a hunt for the the thread for you.
