To create an electric bass guitar you will need to utilize many different types of tools. These tools will range from simple hand tools, to electric hand tools, to larger more high powered ones.
Tools that you will need:
- Hand Planner
- Wood Carving Chisel (optional but very helpful at times)
- Different sizes of Files and Rasps
- A set of screw drivers
- Fine precision saw
Electric and power tools:
- Router and various bits.
- Electric drill
- Belt sander
- Orbital sander
High power machinery:
- Reciprocating Saw ( A smaller blade about 3/8th" and a larger 1/2" blade)
- Band Saw
- Drill Press
- Table Saw (Optional, mine has a dead motor)
*These tools will make crafting the building supplies necessary for building a bass guitar much easier. If you do not have all of these tools do your best with what you have in your workshop, but remember to always use safety when using electric machinery.
