Bass building workshop

that classic Bass belongs in your hands, not in your dreams. 

Let us tell you a little bit about what to expect at one of our Bass Building Workshops.

 

-You choose which neck and body combination excites you most and we save it for you if our suppliers have your combo in stock. You can choose from two designs. 

 

-When you arrive for your scheduled workshop, you will first learn everything you need to know to get your bass neck to a professional level. This includes learning about truss rod adjustments, nut installs, tuning machine installation, and fret leveling, crowning, and polishing.

 

-You will then learn everything you need to know about wiring up your bass. We not only show you the process but also explain how things work, giving you the skills to work on other basses and guitars in the future. You will learn to read a wiring schematic, learn to wire all of your potentiometers, install your output jack, and install your pickups. 

 

-You will then assemble your neck and body together to get a look at your creation! We end the class by showing you how to properly set up your bass to get it playing exactly as you want it. This in itself is an invaluable skill that can be applied to any bass in the future!

 

-Then, the fun part: You take your bass home! The skills you learn are worth the price alone, but why not get to keep the bass?

 

 

 

These are not pre-packaged, cheap guitar kits. We source each piece of the bass from a different trusted supplier. We have hand-picked the best parts from the best suppliers. These easily end up being American Standard quality instruments. 

 

The goal of the bass-building workshop is for participants to gain the skills necessary to build a bass guitar through personal experience. We teach you the ACTUAL skills that you need to work on guitars. These are not from cheap kits. We source the parts from our trusted suppliers. Participants will then walk away with a brand new bass they built themselves! $600 non-refundable deposit is required. Total Cost is $1200.

 

-Falls Music Shop will provide body, neck, hardware, pickups, strings, and everything needed to build a complete bass guitar.

 

 -All hardware for your bass will be chrome, but we will teach you the skills necessary to replace any piece if you'd like to later on.

 

-Body/finish options can vary based on what our supplier has available. Please select your preferred option when you fill out the contact form and we will be in contact with you to confirm that your options are available or to go over different choices. If you are interested in a finish that isn't listed, please select "Other" and we can see what is available when we reach out to you.  

 

-The class will be held at Falls Music Shop facility on a pre-determined Friday beginning at 6 pm. We will then continue the session the following Saturday at 8 am. For those coming from out of town, there are quality hotels nearby.

 

-Falls Music Shop will provide lunch on Saturday

 

-The participants will leave with a professionally set-up, American made bass.

 

-Cost is $1200 per class. A $600 deposit is required to sign up. Students must prepay the remaining one month in advance.

 

-There are no refunds after payment has been made.

 

-Falls Music Shop is not liable for the following after the class is over:

 

  • Wear or breakage of frets or strings, or other normal wear and tear of the instrument or its parts.

  • Defects caused by modification, misuse or abuse or improper maintenance of the instrument.

  • Defects involving subjective personal likes or judgments.

  • Defects caused by accident or exposure to extremes of temperature or humidity that causes harm to the instrument.

 

      -Our goal is for students to learn many bass-building skills and take home a quality instrument that they made themselves. We want it to be a truly unique and rewarding experience
