anybody have a vintage supro/airline/whatever?

Postby maninashed » Wed Dec 20, 2017 8:14 pm

I wanna get one of those resoglass bodies and build a map pocket bass, but there's not much information on how the necks are made

I know the pocket bass neck is straight up just a guitar neck so if you have one of those it'll be the same

what scale are they? are they flatsawn or quartersawn? all I know is that they don't have a truss rod and have 20 frets, and are made of maple with a rosewood fretboard


any info would be great

There's a company that sells kit resoglass bodies that fit standard necks but i dunno anything about them.

Sometimes I get so upset that I don't have a goth gf I put on type-o-negative and jerk off.

yeah thats the company I was gonna buy from, I think they fit old necks too? I'm just a big nerd for accuracy and as a first project building a neck without a truss rod doesn't seem too hard


I used to have a regular pocket bass but I sold it a few years ago and now they're insanely expensive

is there another guitar forum where I might be more likely to find someone with one?

The neck on my old Airline is flatsawn, 24 3/4” scale, 1 5/8” nut width, slightly V shaped profile, and the shallow two bolt pocket. Any other details/dimensions you’d like just let me know.

is this a normal thing for these guitars? I don't remember the neck of my pocket bass being that heavy
