This could be git related or not. So, what's on your workbench at the moment?
I have 4 scarf joint necks in different stages of work.
A 25" scale pine 5 string neck for a Banjo-Res, A 25" scale Red Oak neck for my 6 string Strat-Res build, A 24 & 1/2" scale Red Oak neck for my 6 string Double Cut Tele build and a 27" scale 6 string Baritone Conversion neck for a Modern Strat body I have.
Hi Paul, good to see you on the forum again. Nice job, shame about the faults. it's going to look good with a sunburst effect. Will you lay clear coats over the gold paint?
Hey Taffy, Saw your Violin build on the throw back build contest, awesome.
I was 2 coats of clear on the gold one when a bug committed suicide on the back and removing said bup went down to the primer which caused a hole in my metallic paint. After many curse words, I managed to fix the hole and got both SG's ready for paint and clear. Today it's 75 degrees out and I was going to finish painting these, but the moisture is way up making it muggy and have 20mph wind. So no painting today. May have a long wait. May have to switch over to my amp projects.
Looks good Michael!! Happy holidays :)
Great job Michael.
Had a bad Sciatica attack that left me bed ridden for a month. I'm walking now and doing stuff again.
I made a JBass about 10 years ago because some of the bass players I liked back in the day played them. I didn't care much for the single coils, so I wired them together in series to the second volume pot(JBass has 2 volumes and 1 tone-no switch). I liked it better, but I still wanted some Gibson type thud.
Hey, welcome back Paul, glad your health is improving. nice looking bass guitar and interesting mods.
Me Too, this Sciatica attack was horrible.
The 6-string Wickedbucker is making a fantastic neck Bass pickup since it has a 4k output. I'm sure it would make a great 6-string guitar pickup for the neck position as well.
Trippy shape, Paul! the original pre CBS control setup was 2 stacked concentric pots? I think CBS was trying to shave a little money off production costs by switching to different pots?
I used a seat pan from a dinette chair for the body made of Malaysian Rubberwood(Oak). It wasn't big enough for the Strat upper horn that I traced onto the wood, so I rounded it off for a Tele-ish shape. ;)
I think CBS-Fender did try the concentric pots on their J Bass to save money on control plates, so they could just use one plate for all their Bass models?
