    Keeping a bass original?

    Thanks for the info, and the offer of help...however the trouble is...the parts don't appear to be solid brass..so shot blasting will bring it back to the base metal

    Keeping a bass original?

    Haha..yes I guess I am a proper lucky sod...but to be fair..I've been looking and gassing for one for ages. Even luckier was that the seller was less than 20 miles away from me!....Result. Im really looking forward to completing the work, and shall of course post some pics when it's completed.

    Honour demands that you buy this bass. It's your duty. 😜

    Keeping a bass original?

    I agree. So far the only unusable parts have been the bridge posts, I've managed to source some new brass ones. The nut it came with was non original..a strange affair made from plastic and a brass strip..they were originally solid brass..so I'm fitting another new brass nut...the rest of the brassware is getting a " comb over" as it is very pitted and crap looking.
