This is my first (and probably only) effort at making a bass guitar.
The body is a body from a standard electric guitar picked up at a car boot sale. The neck is a bass neck from eBay. I had to change to a bass bridge, and move it back to accommodate the larger scale length, but that was it.
The holes for the machine heads were drilled by my daughter's father-in-law. I didn't have a drill bit large enough at the time. Thanks for that!
Once I'd got a proper bass pickup installed (eBay, from China!), which can be seen in the third image above, it sounds pretty good to me.
