Mailloux #001, the very first one

Post by Phil » 06 Jul 2016, 21:14

Well after having just 'found' my original amateur website I created in 2004 back when I still lived in Holland I figured I might as well post it here since it chronicles the build of my very first full build.

Be warned that there's plenty of stuffs ups and ill-informed and badly researched tips. Its a good laugh at a poor amateur that got in way too deep, I'm sticking it here strickly for 'historical purposes' :lol:

The main page of the site is now dead so click on each section separately and come back to the previous page to click on the link for the next pge ('main' link on each page is a dead link)

That was an awesome read Phil. Thanks for sharing. I'm sure you'll take it the right way when I say I like your new designs much better :)
* 2 Stingray 5's (one heavily modded), Ibanez SR805, Ashbory, + more...
* Carvin B1500, Epifani PS1000, Ashdown Superfly amps.
* Lots of DIY neo/lightweight cabs including one made from composites http://www.ozbassforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2546

Thanks Blaine very nice! :)

And thanks Pete, there was a lot of learning to be done after that first build. It was easier to copy a bass I had major gas for at the time then try to design something.
