Re: Jazzmaster Bass #2

And then the crappy job of routing more of the pickguard - my own first world problem by creating pickguard stock out of fiberglass. Neck pocket to pickguard fit is of course done by not cutting the neck pocket section until the heel is ready to be fitted to the pocket. Once that task is completed, ...

Re: Jazzmaster Bass #2

Anyhoo...onto another progress report: The hot water treatment on the veneer fretboard worked like a charm - an absolutely flawless adhesion. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4515/26984524049_9b9e7b5d46_b.jpg Next comes alignment and neck pocket fitting. Often a tedious and time consuming task. But vit...

Re: Red Bass Owners Show Your Bass(es)!

Torino Red! That's killer! And Veebass should be penalized for causing robot chubbies with his Gold Top... Oh Lord, of course - Nick's Dak Red Stang. My goodness that is one of the sweetest vintage basses I've ever heard. Sadly, my red one is soon to fly the coop - a good friend is buying it for a C...

Re: Fretless has dead notes on all first 'frets'

The pics are terrible, but the nut looks like the string slots are way too deep.

Re: Jazzmaster Bass #2

Being an old bastard who has played tons of old Fender basses, new ones and built quite a few from parts providers as well as recently built a few from scratch, I have noticed a sonic difference between a slab rosewood board and a radiused rosewood board. The radiused boards definitely have a nicer ...

Re: Jazzmaster Bass #2

Certainly is a radius on the neck for a veneer fretboard, how novel! Here's what it looks like when finished on the right, compared to the 'standard' on the left (instead of 1,000 words). http://fendermustangstory.com/gphotos/slab_veneer.jpg They your necks, Nick? Interesting to see a slab board fr...

Re: The Things You Find on Facebook...

No,if my memory serves me well, he had passed and his son came up here to sell to me. Wow. Nice to know a history to an instrument beyond the previous owner. I assume his dad would have bought it new in Australia, since it came in that Australian made case... I fired it up today through my 400PS an...

Re: Jazzmaster Bass #2

Today did a short session with David - rectified the veneer fretboard dilemma. We snapped one trying to clamp and glue it down on Saturday. Dave and Rob brainstormed the issue - trying to think back in time to how Fender did it for so many decades with all their rosewood veneer fretboards after abou...

Re: The Things You Find on Facebook...

It's funny - it's the second 66/67 J Bass I've seen in the last few weeks - there was one advertised in the States recently on one of those more pricey guitar store's pages - it was a little shinier and 5 thousand more expensive, but it was literally a block/bound December 66 neck with 66 pots and J...

The last place I was expecting to find a Xmas 66/New Year 67 J Bass in all original condition with bonus 1970 Regional Battle of The Bands Winner medallion inset into the back of the body! https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4541/24795365158_2b516aa399_b.jpg https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4568/37949968724_...
