    My son wanted to try building a bass guitar out of the Ambrosia Maple that was timbered out of our woods, so I made a block and we cut the shape. He just got it back from his friend who routed out the openings needed. Now he has a lot of sanding to do!! I will update progress as we slowly go along! Thanks for lookin! Rob---- Update, Finished product!!

      Looks like a Fender. Will you use Fender hardware?
    6. bobby725 bobby725, 10 months ago
      Thanks fort, We traced it from my son`s fender bass and a friend of his gave him a fender with a very bent neck (like it leaned against a wall for a long time) so he bought a new neck and we are using the hardware from that guitar. If this does not work, he can rebuild the old one. Thanks again!

      Looking Eire' Mon ! How does it sound ? Quality improves in direct proportion to amount of beer or brownies consumed.

      Looks AWESOME, Rob!! I **love** the maple woodgrain!! <applause> but otherwise don't think I know much more about guitars than that maple is apparently supposed to be a good wood to make 'em from...so will also take your son's word that it sounds as good as it looks!! <BRAVO, ALL!!!> :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)
