Frankly I can't think of an easier and more enjoyable project than building a fretless bass, and trust me when I tell you, it's easier than you think! With a little patience and attention to detail you can have a top of the line instrument for half the shelf price! If there is one thing I have learned over the years about building my own fretless basses is that once you take the responsibility of making your own axe, you become a master of your own sound. If your bass sounds and plays well or sounds and plays crappy it will be because you took the time to put the parts together and experiment! The best preliminary step to building is to go to one or more local music stores and just play basses. Make note of what you like and what you don't like about the sound, appearance and configuration of the basses, that way when you are ready to drop some cash on your parts you will know what to get. Another thing to keep in mind is that if you use crappy parts you will get a crappy sound. Always get the best grade woods and hardware you can afford, trust me it makes a HUGE difference!
it will gain a nice luster that will polish nicely with the wool. It is also important to remember that the neck needs to have a good amount of finish on it. This is because the neck is under constant pressure and any moisture can compromise the strength of the wood that leads to warpage. ( There are some woods that cant even take coats of like most of the African woods because they are too oily or waxy already.) I find that Tru-Oil needs a good day or two to cure which is why I always try to finish the body and the neck staggered one after the other.
So you can very well calculate the total cost of procurement for the cable provided you measure out the routing distance in feet between your computer Ethernet port and the device to which you want to connect it to. Next item on your buying list are the two RJ-45 connectors unless you already have them with you. You also need to have a crimping device and a network cable connection tester. The wiring diagram you can easily download using the Internet. Two such diagrams are available. One uses the TIAEIA-568-A wiring standard and the other the TIAEIA-568-B wiring standard. Incidentally TIA stands for Telecommunications Industries Association and EIA stands for Electronic Industries Association.
A simple coat or two of this stain can yield luster and beauty, depending on the kind of wood you use for your bass. A visit to your local hardware store can get you started and there is a wide range of colors and blends to choose from! Another thing to keep in mind is that you might want to go with the Tru-Oil finish by itself, especially if you have a nice grain of wood. A simple image search of Tung Oil or Tru-Oil finished instruments will yield many beautiful results. Please explore and experiment.
