DIY Electric Bass Guitar Kit - Fretless 5 String J Bass Build Your Own

The FretWire

$ 170.00
Regular price $ 170.00

The classic J bass, redefined.

This bass is setup for 5 strings, and the frets are... well... there are no frets. Put some flat wound strings on there and go low and mellow.

Note- there are no fret markings at all. You will need to supply the inlay material or otherwise mark the bass as you see fit.

This kit contains everything you need to build your guitar.  Just add your finish materials to the body and neck.  These kits aren’t just a collection of random parts- each neck has been custom fitted to the body to ensure a good, snug fit.  Includes a finished, predrilled body, fretted neck, all electronics and hardware. Wood is raw and unfinished, may require sanding and patching or other preparation prior to applying a finish.

Sold as a complete kit. Includes basic instructions.
