"Much depends on the type of music you'll play, but it's a bass you're making so I'd say go with E and A. You can play up the neck if need be but once you're down to the nut, that's it! "

"Hi, I'm new to the site, but not to the bass. I've played bass for 30+ yrs and have added most other string instruments along the way. I'm looking to build a 3/4 scale upright and a CB Fiddle(but that's another story &…"

Double Bass Project

I'm thinking of building a double bass (upright). I had the idea of using an old roaster for the body (I know not really a cigar box), but I'm not sure I want to go with metal. Anyone one got an idea on what to use for the body? Preferably larger than a cigar box, yet wooden. Any suggestions would be welcomed!See More
