I have always wanted to build my own bass, except i simply havent got the time, equipment or skill, so im wondering is there anwhere that you can buy just the bass body and neck? im gonna see if i can do all the wiring and pickups etc etc myself....


Preferably cheap?

Warmoth cost a LOAD to send abroad, so I would expect your best bet is to find a Irish place or one in England. I expect delivery would be cheaper if your in Northern Ireland but I guess your in the Republic. Warmoth is about $200 for a neck & the same for the body, so liike £200 (240ish euro?)

Ya i had a look at them and they dont look cheap.... im basically looking down all avenues to try and get a little experience in modding/building basses..... i dont wanna screw up my primary bass, because there is still a possibility of a few gigs before Christmas..... after that i have until june so its ok. I need it cheap because i also need a new amp. A big amp an expensive amp

You any good with woodwork? Cause you could always get a pre-made neck from some place like Warmoth and cut yourself the body, I found a lump of 'decent' (I can't tell one lump from another) looking piece of what I think was maple, not sure for like £36. I think the neck pockets are about 2 and a half inches by 3 and 7/8ths and the depth is like 5/8ths (according to Warmoth). And I'm pretty much in your situation, I really wana make a bass but I can't afford to do it really well. I think if I went on a budget I would be spending about £150ish max.

Ebay has some (pretty shitty, but still) necks.
