Oh man, I have an itching to build my own custom bass. I priced it all out, and it would only cost about $1500 for everything

One piece mahogany body, routed for through-body stringing, 2 EMG active humbuckers, 3 band EQ, volume control, battery box. Finished in transparent black. Straplocks built in.
One piece bubinga neck with ebony fretboard, unlined fretless, Pbass headstock, finished black with black headstock.
All black hardware.

Thing would take a while to build, especially the electronics, but it would be worth it. I'm a little intimidated by building my own though. I priced it off Warmoth.

The Warwick I'm looking at is swamp ash, not bubinga. I always forget there's a bubinga model out there.

The Spector's neck isn't neck-thru, but it's still set, which is always nice. Overall I think Ibanez necks might be a little bit too thin. I'm having a LOT of trouble finding "the right bass", since there's so many random things I'm looking for in a bass and I don't want to buy another bass after this one for 5-6 years.

Also that link is good stuff. When I first got my bass I had to adjust it, that site would have really helped back then. At least now I know what I'm doing.

check out www.warmoth.com if you can't find "the right bass" They make every part to your specs, and then you assemble it. It costs more, but you may get that "perfect bass" and never have to buy another again (except its fun to own several)

I learned a little banjo. The finger picking patterns helped my guitar and bass playing a lot.

I'd like to see a banjo with a Floyd Rose. That'd be cool.

Guitar - Cheap Strat knockoff
Audio - I hook my guitar up to my sound card in computer and record.
I love Zack Wylde and Angus Young

I want to get a nice Martin acoustic/electric. If you want to see it look for the Martin DCXE black.

Anyone know where theres any free instructional videos that I can download?

Edit: my post was naked aka colorless

You know, it's kinda like this. Who cares what kind of guitar you play, as long as you play. Kind of like paintball. (I was talking about the cheap knock off)

Zakks cool. Did you catch him at the RnR inductions? He should have played live.

Well the thing is, Mine sucks. I adjust the inotation, but it doesn't do anything. It still fretts sharp.

But I want a Martin anyway. I played on my uncles Martin and I have been in love with it ever since. It was just easier to play on.

does your guitar have an adjustable bridge? If your strings are tuned correctly when open, but fret sharp, you might need to adjust the length of the strings at the bridge. Let me see if I can find an article on how to do it properly, but there is a certain length for certain size guitars. I'm sure yours is standard scale, so I'll see if I can find it for you. That should fix your problem!

*edit* nevermind...i missed that you already adjusted the intonation. weird that it wouldn't work. Have you tried using fresh strings?

Guitars: Ibanez GSA60, Alvarez RD10 acoustic
Amp: Randall RG-15
Pedal: Zoom GFX-707
Programs: ACID Music Studio, Audacity
Years playing: 1 year 4 months

I started with theory a month ago. Right now I'm messing around with the circle of fifths and playing some chord progressions in different keys. I think I'm progressing pretty quickly; I've had a couple of obstacles where I felt "stuck", but right now I'm pretty confident with what I have learned. I'm playing bits and pieces of Canon Rock today; that song is very challenging for a beginner like me so I can only play a few parts.

I've felt "stuck" many a time in my years of playing. Whenever I do, I go to theory practice. It gets frustrating though!
