A very important note here is to ground the bridge. If the bridge is not grounded your bass will almost always hum when you are not touching the strings. If you still have hum problems you should also have, or should install brass plates under the pickups, and have them connected to the common ground, usually on the back side of the volume and tone pots. Make sure that these plates do not short out the pickups. You can insulate these plates with electrical tape or some other insulator.
We will start with the body. In this tutorial we will be using a simple two piece Alder body, but like I said earlier, your tastes and budget can be the judge on what tone woods or combination you would like. The first step is to sand your new body with a 60 to 150 grit sand paper. This ensures a smooth feel, even grain and uniform look on the wood. Remember to always sand with the grain of the wood and not to push down too hard.
