Hey everyone.

I'm thinking about building my own jazz bass from this website : www.wdmusic.co.uk

These are the parts i'm hoping to get

Body

I'm gonna leave it natural without a paint job,

Neck

And

This Electronics kit

would that be a good idea??

thanks
Yeah, now you're gonna die wearing that stupid little hat. How does it feel?

If you want to make your own guitar, then yes its a good idea (I'll be making my own guitar later this year), however if your looking to save money then its not really a very good idea.

I'm not sure if that's a good deal since I'm not familiar with UK prices. £475 = US $933 and that's MIA Fender territory. Should be a fun project though. Got a color or design in mind?



yeah but to me it would be like $475 if you catch my drift

Even if you choose to leave it natural you still have to do some laquering and such. I know warmoth will do international orders if you look around so yeah. Make sure to make it individual or else there won't be much point to it at all. Though you'll feel like it's a friend rather than a bass when completed.

One of my friends is getting me some clear laquer from his workplace, may i ask how i apply it to the body? and what else i have to do to it
