Waiting for parts

Still waiting for parts. Got some small parts from StewMac, wood will come next week (yeah!) and for the pickups, I’ll have to wait at least another week or two I guess.

Meanwhile, I finished the design of the back of the bass with a control cavity design and the shape of the neck to headstock transition:

Next step will be to make templates for the control cavity.

I’m also making an MDF prototype body, to practice shaping the round over, belly cut and heel transition. Some work in progress on that:

And I’ve made a paper grain selection template and this is how the top will come out:

After the control cavity template I will make a new scarf joint jig and I’ll hopefully receive the pickups so I can finish the pickup and neck pocket template… Then.. I’ll start building
