Re: Maple Fretboard clear coat help

It looks to me like you dissolved a spot of tinted lacquer.

Thanks guys :) I love that truss rod wheel, have been using it for years, simplest way to adjust a neck without worrying about stripping the nut.

Thanks guys, hey Matt the customer's in NSW if you want to track him down for the next GTG :lol:

It's probably in the angle of the rear neck photo (I assume you meant that one) and the directlion of the Wenge grain that makes it look wonky.

Re: Build #12 - 6 string fretless (warning; crazy content)

If the body is at least 20mm thick I'm fairly certain cutting a 5mm recess rout for the pickups wouldn't do anything and you would get the added bonus of actually being able to tweak your pickup heights properly instead of being stuck having to shim them

Re: Tom's Headless 5 String Bass - #033

I'm not too sure, I'm not at home to weight it. It's not that light but not as heavy as I thought it would be when I pulled that Bubinga blank out of the shipping box, that blank was like a boat anchor. :lol:

Behaviour on this forum.

Some of you may have seen the comments on a particular sales thread yesterday.
