This should be cool if it actually works out. Just make sure you keep us informed with pics.

Be careful. Keep in mind that the detail of the body can have almost nothing, or virtually everything to do with the tone and performance of your bass.
Good luck, keep us posted

id like to see how you are going with the bass. im planning on building a bass, either an electric 2 stringed out of a 2x6 and hand wind the pickups and everything, or a cheap 1 string stand up made out of a washtub. the electric would be pretty damn hard especially to fit it all into a 2x6, especially being my first electric guitar building project. keep us informed on this so i can learn from your mistakes

edit: not 2x4, 2x6 (spare cedar i have in my garage)
