This Instructable is for building a bolt on neck, 5 string bass guitar, however all these steps are applicable for a guitar or 4 string bass as well.
This project requires that you have woodworking skills and you know how to to safely use all of the tools stated below.
For this project I used over 20 different tools; however you really only need a few.
-Sander (Orbital, Belt, or Drum)
-Router (with many bits)
-Forstner bit kit
-12" Drill bit
-LOTS of clamps
-Fretboard radius sanding block
If you have the money a jointer, planer, bandsaw and ripsaw are also very helpful.

-Bolt on neck (Hopefully I will soon post another instructable on how to build necks)
-Woodglue Tight bond 3
-Copper tape/ Conductive paint
-A LOT of little screws
