So I am a virgin when it comes to building. I have always wanted to try it simply for the pleasure of saying that I built my own axe. I was just looking for some tips and a bit of advice. First off I play bass and I was wondering on how the type of wood effected tone. I mainly play metal but I am in several other bands ranging from Ska to Blues so it needs to versatile but still have balls when it comes to the metal because that is my main genre. Advice?

Yes. My advice:

Don't duplicate a thread 6 minutes after you make the first one.

Check "the ONLY tone wood thread" for good advice on how wood type will affect your sound. (I'm not being an ass, that's how it's written)
