    Bridge positioning

    What's the best approach to accurately drilling and attaching a bridge into a new body – any advice appreciated

    Norman's jazz bass

    I was lucky enough to see Ian Dury and The Blockheads in 1978 at the New Theatre in Oxford – as was normal for the times, they came onstage wearing brown paper bags on their heads – saw Wilko supporting the Stranglers around 2007 with Norman and Dylan – can't help thinking that the period since the 60s/70s has probably been the best – is the future going to be any good? discuss!

    Norman's jazz bass

    I hear on the grapevine that Colin Greenwood from Radiohead bought Norman Watt-Roy's jazz bass from Andy Baxter – nice that it's gone to someone cool!

    Black Music Man tuners 4+1

    are these the same as on a Stingray 4?
  7. btw, where's rest of the Wal gone?
  8. nice work going on at the unicorn workshop – i've got a Wal preamp and pickup knocking around, maybe Unicorn could be the choice for adding some wooden bits to the parts

    Reducing neck thickness

    Thanks everyone – I will just give it a quick rub down with some sand paper and hopefully that will satisfy me – there's obviously quite a lot to consider and as I have around 10 other basses to choose from this will be low on the priority list 😎

    Reducing neck thickness

    Thanks @Manton Customs and @mybass – in the words of David Bowie, I am an absolute beginner – if I can be bothered with this I will take the cautious, sand-paper-based approach Interesting info about the depth of the truss rod in the middle – I didn't realise this, so thanks for that I will certainly post here if this project takes off Cheers!
  11. I want to reduce the thickness of a baseball bat 70s Aria Precision neck – the truss rod sits some way up from the back of the neck and I'm wondering how much to safely remove and what method would work best, and are there any potential problems such as warping or whatever I saw somebody on youtube doing this with a roundover router bit which looked quite straight-forward: Any advice greatly appreciated Cheers

    Andyjr1515 meets his Nemesis?

    blimey! never seen one before, which is surprising considering the amount of time I spend on here, obsessing, gassing and generally wasting time 😀

    Stingray 4 neck plate

    Thanks Deedee, but it's for a new build – I have a neck, but no plate There's a metalworking chap near me so I will probably sound him out for a price – might be cheaper if he makes more than one, if so I will post here, in case anyone else wants one
  15. Anybody know who might be able to fabricate a 6-bolt neck plate for a Stingray 4?
