I can do 9 and 10

EDIT: I can throw in 8 too, if nobody else wants it.

I think that subjects like:

Tonewood (ultimate tonewood thread, GB&C)
Theory (Musician's Talk)
Some of the amplification parts (impedance, power ratings) (GGA/GBC)
Modifying (GB&C)


Are already covered in other forums so I would link to those or copy them into here instead of writing a whole other section.

Those parts would be written more towards a bass players perspective, for example walking basslines in theory. It's easier to read a brief overview in the FAQ first, than to be sent somewhere else straight away. There will still be links to the more in depth explanations if anyone wants to research into them more.

I'll set a deadline once we get everything sorted out, but we're aiming to get this done by Christmas time at the latest.

I'll do the guitarist guide to playing bass and if someone wants a bass book section, I'll update that as well.

I don't have enough free time to do one but when it's all done i'll add in things that i think are important that aren't there if you want.

Also i remember del wrote a huge in depth thing about care and maintenance, i think you should just link to that in section 8

Updated. Just need someone for pickups and effects and then a deadline will be set. Just to say as well that if needs be you can lift parts of the old FAQ if they're still relevant, e.g. bass care and maintanance.
