    First build on the way! HBB-5 semi hollow bass

    Hey everyone, kit is on the way and I couldn't be more excited! I'm expecting quite a challenge being my first build but am looking forward to making a really cool bass. I may be terrible with search but there doesn't seem to be many being built..? Hopefully the shipping from Australia to New York City is smooth and I can do a mock-up soon!

    Can't say I've noticed it before but I don't cruise the bass section much. Looks like a pretty cool kit.

    That looks good! Except it seems to be missing the frets 😊

    I ordered the fretted neck. I'm a little concerned about the old school floating bridge on a 5 string tbh but willing to give it a try

    It also doesn't look like anyone else on here has built one 😞

    Chance to be unique! Looks like a nice kit though.

    Ok that will be easier to play!
    I'd be very interested to hear how it sounds different from a more conventional bass with those pickups

    How would that bridge make easier to play? I only have experience on the fender style bridge.
