So, being that I can take on normal person hobbies, i've decided to take a look into building a bass. I"m not going to be doing this for money, or for other people. I just sort of want a project and this sounds like fun. I'm sure after sanding something for 10 hours, i'll think it's less fun, but whatever, i'm not there yet.

What i'd like to know is, what tools are mandatory to get started? I'm not planning on doing much as far as carving. No arch top or anything like that. I plan on doing a fretless but i'd like to do some fretlines possibly. I'm a complete noob so don't assume i know anything about anything.


boosh!

Add a router to the list, which you will need to do the pickups, neck pocket, and control cavity. Well, unless you a masochist and what to chisel them out.

I'm assuming you're buying a neck? Otherwise, you're gonna need a shit ton of other stuff.

Or a drill press will work. with some sanding and smoothing after.
