I am interested in making my own bass guitar (solid body), although I don't know much about it. I know I have the woodworking skills and I know the feel I like in a bass, but of much of fine detail of what would make a good intrument (internal cuts and mechanisms, etc.), I am quite ignorant. I started in two of my local libraries - and nothing. I googled for books to order on the topic, but got a huge list, but I don't know if any of them are worth a damn.
I know from past discussions that there are a few guitar makers here, could one of you suggest a good book on the topic that I can either order or get through inter-library loan?
