I haven't finished my first (an acoustic), but with $150 cap, I'll shoot for an electric or electric bass.

This should be fun.

I am still looking for woods I can resaw for my uke. It's hard to find any solid wood just floating around in Taiwan, or in any hardware store for that matter. I've looked into finding old furnitures to cut up but most furnitures out there are either plywood or particle board.

I was hoping to find an old style bench (which consists of a board and legs to support it) and cut them up into ukes. Either that, or I will have to find some Primavera or lauan or pine boards to resaw...

I don't know if I can make it by the end of this month but I'm working on one that fits the criteria. I have parts coming that probably wouldn't even be here by then. Total cost for me right now though is just the parts, some switches to be exact. I guess I did buy the fretwire, but I've had it laying around for a while. Everything else was free.
