Your best bet is to get it directly from Gitty? Support@CBGitty.com

Hi Tim, if you can't find the actual plans and you are not aiming to copy that build exactly, then you could draw up your own plan. What I did was to use my regular 3 or 6-string box and ad a bass neck, or rather half a bass neck. Literally.

Of course, the bass scale is different and that will put the bridge in a different position on the box. I'm sure you would find fret positioning info on this site.

I'm assuming you will be making this bass electric, so box volume is not so important in getting deeper bass tones.

The box I used was just used to attach everything to and hide the controls, as I used a breadboard as the main body.



Good luck Taff

He’s looking for the build instructions to the Gitty Bass kit not build plans?

Thanks Taffy!
That’s a sweet looking bass.
CB Gitty sent me the pdf file for it.

Hi Tim, I did not realize you already had the bass,, I thought you were starting from scratch.

I’ll be building a three string bass once this on is complete.
