Re: Warwick fretting method

I'm sure I saw StewMac selling a dremel rig for cutting fret slots at one stage. From memory it was a guide that you used with their dremel router attachment.

Re: Insurance on gear

Find out what the excess on a claim will be. If it is close to the value of what you would claim then there's probably not much point having that policy. I'm another one who has a portable goods option on my NRMA insurance. I'm pretty sure I would need to pay $500 excess for a claim on that policy s...

Re: 1/4" Guitar Jacks

Yeah I might be interested in a couple. Do people generally use the stereo ones for switching on a preamp by shorting to ground on a mono cable?

Re: Attaching a Fender neck to an "Alder" body of cheap bran

In theory that should work but just be careful choosing a body. You'll need something that has the same size or smaller neck pocket and obviously if smaller you'll need to route it out to fit. Also what about the screw holes? Will they line up or will you need to drill new ones in your neck?

Re: Flats

I've had hassles with "sticky" flats with several brands. Nose grease always does the trick! Mike I just put a set of Medium Chromes on my Jazz bass - never used flats before and I love the feel of them on my fretting (R) hand. However they are real grippy though on my left though with more noticea...

Re: Recording bass

Just a thought... could it be your recording kit? I know if I use anything to get signal to my computer via USB there is always a few milliseconds delay which really throws your timing out, especially if you are monitoring from the computer. You're talking about latency... I am... I just don't like...

Re: How not to route a new pickup space...

So did the neck move because of climate or this hack job? And I do mean "hack job". Honestly I think I could have done some cleaner cuts with a hatchet. :/

Re: Whats the best way to store your babys

I would preferrably go with hard for safety but really it depends how often you use them and how much space you have to store them.

Re: A very long term project

Went to the recycling yard today and found this chunk of wood. No idea what I'm going to use it for but it wouldnt let me leave it behind :) Also picked up a 2m piece of door jamb that may be jarra. Surprisingly had no nail holes. That bit is destined for neck laminates http://tapatalk.imageshack.co...
