  1. Super glue and rose wood dust is the way. I recently refretted a les Paul that had some serious gouges to the fretboard. Using the glue and dust method, none of the repairs were visible once finished.
  2. I've always been able to get a clean sound out of mine, first with Markbass cabs and then Barefaced. The only time it got a bit fuzzy, was when the preamp valves needed changing. I swapped them out and it was back to how I liked it. It's a bit of a faff changing them but I got it all done in under an hour.
  3. If you need to get the neck straighter Nick and the truss rod nut feels tight, don't force it. If you are confident in doing the work yourself, you need to get the neck straightened by clamping it. This will take the stain off of the truss rod. Then try loosening the nut first, just to release it. You should then hopefully be able to tighten it (after apply a little lubricant), sometimes an extra washer needs to be added but not always. All being well, this would do the trick. If you need a bit more detail, happy to chat via pm or phone.
  4. Mick, you should the state of some the instruments that I get to work on. The worse ones are school music department guitars and basses.
  5. The pickups being too close can cause problems even when unplugged. You could try lowering them and see if there is any improvement. If the problem isn't cured, just return them to how they were.
  6. Could be the nut or that the pickups are too close to the strings.
  7. Wishing you a very happy birthday Jack. I would liked to have got your bass back to you in time for your birthday but it's been giving me a hard time, plus I'm on shut down until the new year
  8. A decent iron makes all the difference, quicker, safer and much more efficient.
  9. Hasn't all of this been detailed in the Barefaced pedal thread?
  10. He had some great session guys on the albums. Have to admit to still playing them on occasion.
  11. That sounds pretty awful. I'm extremely careful/scared around power tools, having seen the damage that they can inflict.
  12. Will have to check that one out Lozz
  13. I really enjoyed working on your Tele Mick, nice player.
