  1. It was actually a pretty good fit, I didn't have to shave or sand the neck pocket at all. The only minor issue was as the neck was second hand and had existing drill holes (2 of them matched up) I decided to make it nice and solid as there was enough room for 6.
  2. Thanks, wear a dust mask, protective eye wear and gloves, use either machine tools or fine toothed hacksaw files etc. It's an unforgiving material to work with so I usually make card template(s) until I'm happy then go for it with the carbon fibre.
  3. Custom made by me! I had purchased a few sheets of genuine carbon fibre to use for pedal boards and little jobs such as this. I nearly made one for the bell control plate, I may yet but would need to buy another sheet.
  4. Pretty much finished with a lovely set of split coil bartolini's (totally noise free) I have installed recently.
  5. It's all inescapable! Five or six weeks ago I said to my wife and best friend, "I'm sorted now don't need any more basses and love what I have". A couple of days later I saw a (unique) bass advertised which I had coveted for many years and actually tried five years ago in a music shop. I couldn't afford it then but I can now! So much for good intention, deposit put down, coincidentally the asking price Was £600.
  6. In the late 80's I was a student in Stoke on Trent, still very new to bass and enjoying learning. Route 66 had 2 or 3 Egypt basses in stock, I looked at them a lot! Couldn't afford anything even half the price at the time. Aah.
  7. Thanks Brian, it is indeed very capable.

  11. I'm fairly sure the late great Jaco Pastorius was a Rotosound endorser. He certainly used them and subsequently there was a set with different colour wraps dedicated to him. Why Jaco? Where to begin? Roto roundwounds on a fretless helped define his sound, flawless timing, great melodic awareness and masterful execution.
  12. Vigier make amazingly playable instruments
  13. Just fitted a passive wiring loom for my jazz build - so much better than the stock item. Thanks John.
