First build.  I just routed the pickup cavities.  Walnut SSB blank, wenge neck with ziricote fretboard and turquoise inlays.  I plan model the body off the Danelectro Dane type E or Coral ‘wasp’ bass that has a thin taper on the edge.  I don’t think I will go as thin as the original, but I plan to make a lot of sawdust this summer.

…next step, route the control cavity and find some MDF for the body template.

I’m still not 100% sold on the body shape, but I do want to do a modern contoured body that’s based on a vintage shape like the Jazzmaster or Rick.

If I can make a small suggestion, perhaps move the cutout of the body shape further back so that you get more upper fret access.
