Hello Martin, Thank you very much for your advice and input.   I will be ckeckin' out the web page. sounds like they have a lot of info. on  on there.  I bought the lightest guage short scale strings. I could find.(95) They seem to have the least amount of string tention. I will put up some pics of it up soon.   have the neck blank done but still have to do the fretbord yet. I will build up the sides along the neck in the box like you were saying. Thanx for you input.!!! I was thinkin of making the neck thicker up to  about the first octive from the box   . with out a truss rod I hope it will hold up..

Martin, playin bass for 40 years, Very Cool.!!!  Have you made yourself a CBBG. I am trying to make one,  a 3 string 30" scale. but I not sure if the neck will hold out in standerd tunning. I might have to tune it down to an open tunning. Yeah man March 31   I know what your are saying, it's true..!!!
