  1. [quote name='TPJ' timestamp='1455529672' post='2979797'] Congrats again Andy. Enjoy [/quote] Thanks Tom matey, your help has been invaluable [quote name='philparker' timestamp='1455536169' post='2979884'] Yep, that's got mojo! [/quote] haha, yep she looks 'well loved' [quote name='Grangur' timestamp='1455537991' post='2979917'] Looks cool. What's it sound like? [/quote] Thanks bud, sound...not quiet but kinda mellow and balanced, not boomy but with a nice amount of bottom nice even volume across the strings and up and down the neck...surprisingly lovely sounding for an old laminate lady
  2. Just got her home and had a proper play back to back with Tom's lovely duke, first impressions are she has a nicely balanced voice to say how inexpensive she was/is and her neck feels really good to play Currently strung with the 'rotosound superb' strings (d & g nylon, e & a monel on nylon core)...I kinda like 'em She's got oodles of mojo but is still structurally sound [url=https://flic.kr/p/DbbNXV][/url] [url=https://flic.kr/p/DbbNKR][/url] [url=https://flic.kr/p/DaRw6Y][/url] [url=https://flic.kr/p/DZkoqM][/url] She does currently lack an endpin... [url=https://flic.kr/p/DX9yEu][/url] Does anyone have any spare endpin bits lying around please? Needs a fixing bolt for the endpin and an endpin, it may be cheaper to just get a complete new endpin but an old bit would look right on her and I'm intending to have a wooden endpin made when i resolve the bolt issue (by Ben Bastin as they're lovely and solid). ...at some point she'll need a new fingerboard but she's ok for now
  3. Just bought Darren's spider pedalboard flightcase, super easy deal, shipped exactly when he said he would and it's exactly as described! Perfecto thanks matey
  4. Sheffield help - can I please borrow an acoustic db for a show on Monday night!? I would usually use my eub for this kind of show but this one is completely unplugged as it's a sofarsounds thing...it's also a very short notice 'helping a mate who's organising the show' kinda deal Pleasey
  5. Hiya matey, This is really pretty and the reduced size is v tempting How does the sound compare to a standard 3/4 db?
  6. hiya matey, your pic links aren't working at the moment? Could you post up the internal dimensions please?
  7. Fingerboard has been 'radiussed' and is ready for a coat of lacquer, the body has been base coated and is about to be flatted back ready for the topcoats and tints [url=https://flic.kr/p/CZx6Qp][/url] [url=https://flic.kr/p/CADigF][/url] [url=https://flic.kr/p/CAwtjw][/url] Next stop is clear lacquer on the body and fingerboard before tinting, then frets in the board and it's neck carve time...lookin proper sexy
  8. [quote name='Iheartreverb' timestamp='1453824913' post='2963164'] Thanks mate [/quote] Not a problem [URL=http://s12.photobucket.com/user/deanjones999/media/4A6391D4-984B-4527-8A0E-A0E88232190C_zpsq0kxfica.jpg][IMG]http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a237/deanjones999/4A6391D4-984B-4527-8A0E-A0E88232190C_zpsq0kxfica.jpg[/IMG][/URL]

  11. [quote name='owen' timestamp='1453820304' post='2963070'] I changed the black side dots on a Maple/Maple neck to glow in the dark dots. It did not work well. [/quote] haha oops I was thinking black dots on maple would give sufficiently good contrast for visibility, I've not had a problem seeing the black side dots on very yellowed vintage maple of my '78 P
  12. [quote name='MacDaddy' timestamp='1453817313' post='2963022'] Have you gone for any additional contouring for comfort? [/quote] I'd not played a bass that fits me so well prior to this one so keeping contours identical to my '78 works for me, we are making the transition between contours a bit more smooth that the original but that's about it, it just sits right and the forearm contour is really comfy as it is
  13. [quote name='dannybuoy' timestamp='1453816592' post='2963006'] I'd just go for some glow in the dark side markers. You can't see the front dots when playing anyway! [/quote] I shall be having side dots of some sort for sure, as you say, the front dots don't get seen when you're playing it anyway...also adds a hint of mystery for those watching who can play as they're not immediately sure what notes your playing
  14. So the fingerboard is now glued to the neck and it's time to choose...dots or no dots! [url=https://flic.kr/p/DtoKgJ][/url] I chose no dots
  15. [quote name='CamdenRob' timestamp='1452616065' post='2951704'] I believe they are all 34" ... my sixer is and so is my MK1 [/quote] Thanks matey, I'd be interested to try a 5'er too then at some point, to see how the B holds up as I am usually a 35" scale lover for 5'ers
  16. [quote name='keving' timestamp='1452609573' post='2951590'] A whole week without a bump, looks like you got away with it [/quote] Phew I thought it was going to run and run and run...
  17. while I am after a mk1 fretless ideally I keep seeing 5 string ones and they look lush...what is the usual scale length on the 5 string Wal?
  18. Well that's saved me a bunch of credit card anguish, hope the Wal has gone to a happy home...I shall be watching for it coming round again though
  19. [quote name='Beedster' timestamp='1452203282' post='2947668'] Bump for pics of the Wal, pics of other two to follow tomorrow [/quote] Holy carp she is utterly gorgeous!
  20. [quote name='Rich' timestamp='1452171722' post='2947219'] Fixed. [/quote] ta
  21. [quote name='discreet' timestamp='1452161495' post='2947043'] God, this is taking ages!! Seriously though, it looks like good clean work. As you'd expect, really. [/quote] He's certainly getting on with it, once the body is done he's then got a few bodies ready for spraying so he can do them all at once. I'm told the neck will take a fair bit longer than the body has, once the graphite rods are in he'll be glueing the fingerboard to the neck and all that jazz... It looks and feels stunning already, his work is superb!
  22. Popped in yesterday to have a look at the revised body carve and got to see the neck blank and fingerboard ready to assemble when the graphite rods arrive... Body carve is looking very sweet indeed (particularly deep belly cut on my '78), just 2 tiny areas to tweak and then she's good to spray then it's the longer and more delicate process of the neck carve
