Any specific questions?

yes is this length of board ok for this build  does it sound right or do i have to work to a different formula

30" is about the length for a short-scale bass so 32" will work.

Just make sure you buy strings appropriate for your scale length and you'll be good to go.

ok thanks for the info Buddy

I just checked my 2 string bass. It's a fretless 28" scale. I just bought the cheapest strings the shop had. Works fine.

Daddy D do ya have any pics of your bass thanks Bud
