Hey guys. I've found that this year I have 2 choices to choose from this year if I want build something to do with guitar/bass.

ONE


Bass build:
To get a Carvin Neckthrough 5 string neck and build either Explorer or Thunderbird bass
(If my sister can pay for the parts, i'll make her one too!)

TWO


Cab build:
Sell my Marshall MG and buy a Handsome Devil head and then build a 2x12 cab.


What'da think?

i would normally say build the bass - more of a challenge then a cab build - but that mg needs to go...

This right here. Even if you have the most amazing guitar or bass imaginable with the best tone wood, best pickups, best set up, it still won't sound too great when its played through a bad amp.

Go with the the cab build.

The cab would be a big step up from the MG, it's the 30 watt one.

But the Idea of wenge for a bass just slipped into thought.

If you build the bass, DO NOT build a t-bird. The T-bird has terrible fret access, nosedives like a bitch and it's generally bad. Although, different wood from gibson and changing the mudbuckers to actual pickups might have some good effect, you'd still have poor upper fret access.

Yeah, that's It.

I'd build a bass now, stop learning how to play guitar at the end of this year and then take up bass for two years. Then i'd just wing it from there.

I wanted to build a bass just so that I could learn slap bass really! But a cab is a better Idea I think.

Also you can build a cab in like three days, and that's including budgeted time for getting drunk with your friends every evening. I'm not sure a year is required...
