Re: Build #3, 4, 5 ...

Haha! I did actually ... a set of scrapers, a burnisher, some new safety glasses to replace my scratched up pair, and a set of drill bits.

Re: Build #3, 4, 5 ...

Thanks for the info. I've ordered two 0.5mm bits just now off eBay.


Still trying to source some quality cabinet scrapers and burnisher ...

I've used some super strength epoxy from Bunnings - the kind you squeeze out from two barrels then mix together. The rods were a tight fit anyway.

Congrats Matt on your commission builds. Can't go wrong with Michael's basses. They are exemplary!!

Re: Let's See Your Basses... TWO! (Post Photobucket $)

I'm still in the slooooooow build process. Soccer season has now finished, so there is some extra time on Saturday morning now. The last thing I did was cut fret slots into the fingerboard.

A superb collection there Michael! I only just realised there are 7 neck bolts on the Red Manta.
I look forward to seeing what modifications you plan for the Q.
I also hear you'll be building a short scale too.

Re: FS: New Palmer Pocket Bass Amp DI Semi Para Preamp /OD/Fuzz/Cab Sim $199

A great scale length! Also working on a custom 35" ... very slowly.

The Palmer is still available. $180 for OBF members.
