  1. Wow, that is SL indeed. My only small gripe is that I prefer the old straight control plate shape to the newer rounded. But others will likely have it the other way around. My old VM was 4.5kg......

    Weight difference minimal, graphite is not a lightweight option so to speak.

    PSUs under Pedalboards

    RIP doorstopper Nice solution. I actually used to have a wirless underneath my pedalboard, and would fold antennas out when using.... go for it.

    Lovely bass, absolute cracker of a modern jazz. GLWTS!

    Strandberg - somethings cooking - boden bass

    I see a lot of “this is not a proper fan”, so how is a 34-37” proper, and 34-35.5 not? To me it is mistaking convention with reality. The ideal G string length many would argue is 32” whilst the best B I ever had was 36”. Should proper not be 32-36” then? Ibanez and others have just taken a different view of what works best in their eyes in my view. Why is the Dingwall Super Jazz scale different than their NG?

    Problem with P bass wiring

    Have you shielded the cavity? If so you may be shorting the jack input if it touches the shielding.

    Navarone.45-43"multiscale headless

    I am truly intrigued about the scale size, apologies if this has been answered already: what is the main reason you have a 40” P and are building this even longer scale bass? Is it all due to down tuning?

    No, Status uses a very thick graphite bottom layer, 6-8mm thick. This provides enough stability to fix the neck, but hole diameter and counter sinking to prevent cracking is key.

    I would use a larger diameter bit to do that mate, you don’t want the 5mm to bite and widen the hole. An 8mm or special counter sink bit and just lightly take away a little material is best. Then, if the screw gets really tight do not force it. Maybe use the 5 to widen the hole, but I think you are fine with a 4.5mm.

    I just checked, for a 5mm screw I would use a 4.5mm bit. 4mm is too small and you may crack the neck.

    Especially the counter sunk bit is important. HSS metal bit also works well.
