Re: Future Builds - Kinda Not Random

Just a teaser shot of the back. 3 layers of my "not so secret sauce" finish, "0000" steel wool after the first two, then another very thin layer of the satin Osmo and I have to say I've never had such a silky-smooth finish (no stickiness at all) while still feeling the texture. Very happy. Finished ...

Re: I can not adjust the bridge pickup height in my squier.

I've been using hot water pipe insulation foam with OK results. It does settle eventually and I generally put another piece in at that time.

Bit hard to do on a motor bike? I'm guessing you have to lay it down when you are away from a garage with a stand.
On a motorbike, it's basically time to call a tow truck. There's no spare!
My car's a bit like that - no spare, just the dreaded foam cartridge :rollno: .

Re: Latest Builds

Busy boy! The roll-over looks really nice (although I find it way too restrained).

And what about that violin? Amazing!

Catch up Friday? Kermit "Sauron" is ready for a fret job ... .

Re: Fancy Neck Woods?

Three options:
- graphite
- wenge
- multi-laminate (5) of maple and wenge.

For the last two graphite rods in addition to the truss rod.

There, simples.

Re: FS: 1990 Warwick Thumb NT 4 String

Nice Bass! :thumbup: And it does absolutely nothing. Baseball bat neck, 4 strings only, heavy, despite 34" scale quite hard to play in the money region. It's funny; I've gone the other way. :hmm I've got a Corvette $$ Fretless here that I really wasn't 100% sure about when I first got it (for very ...

Re: FS: 1990 Warwick Thumb NT 4 String

You crack me up, guys. Sorry to hear about your back issues, Ivan. Probably playing basses that are too heavy ;) . No, totally serious about this one this time. I meant what I wrote so definitely on the market. And Blaine, I appreciate your offer but can’t accept it. I’ll do it myself (nothing I enj...

Informal Sydney Mini-GTG

Hi all, I’ve nearly finished a commission build that is going to Sydney (the other one, well, search for Kermit Reject ;) ) and instead of boxing it up and shipping it at great cost I thought I’d take the opportunity to do a personal delivery. That would also give me an opportunity to bring my other...

FS: 1990 Warwick Thumb NT 4 String

So it is with a heavy heart ... . Actually, no - not at all. Every day when I come home I see this on the wall of my study: https://www.flickr.com/photos/94660385@N02/41606458950/in/dateposted-public/ And it does absolutely nothing.

Re: Future Builds - Kinda Not Random

Actuation? No, Blaine, no. OK, a little workshop time today. Good to catch up with Blaine and get things done quickly since the workshop filled up very quickly. And hey, Drew is back for a quick build :D . Unfortunately no progress on the Special Q - David's been too busy with preparations for the S...
