Finally got this done. Had to correct a few miscalculations, but it came out OK. Doesn't sound any better than any other normal sized acoustic bass guitar I've heard, except a guitarron. It was a good learning experience, and now I have an acoustic bass that's easy to haul around (bought a cello gig bag for it.) Haven't tried it plugged in yet (JJB underbridge pickup.)

Maybe I can't fix it, but I can fix it so no one can fix it
