  1. @TrevorG it took about a week what with letting the various oil applications dry properly. It was a looong week 🀣. Thanks for the compliment. A few months on, it’s looking a little more used which is what I was going for with the oil. @Cuzzie I’m sure tape is a faff (I’ve heard it can tear easily) but I found that the paint, especially for the J rout, required a very deft touch so as not to flick the odd bit of paint on to the top of the body. Thankfully, I learned how to avoid it by making those mistakes on the P rout. That scratch plate hides a few oops moments. Also, painting the control cavity seemed to take forever. Sorry for the delay in replies - it’s been a crazy couple of months.
  2. Generally instrumental stuff like Russian Circles, Jet Black Crayon, Mogwai...often some Ozrics. For the past couple of days I've been on a bit of a doom/stoner metal jag: Fu Manchu, The Necromancers, Red Fang, that kind of thing.
  3. I'm pretty chuffed with myself if I'm honest. I've never attempted anything like this before but I've ended up with a lovely bass: The bits: Warmoth P body in swamp ash Finished with Crimson's Penetrating Guitar Oil 2016 Am Std Jazz neck Gotoh 201 bridge EMG GZR PJ set Hipshot D-tuner I've wanted a PJ for quite a while and considered going down the Limelight route but this was, for me, more satisfying (plus I had the neck already). I had a couple of squeaky moments and if I was to do it again, I'd probably shield with copper tape rather than shielding paint but it plays great, sounds fantastic and I am in love with how it looks.
  4. Good on you @mikelawrencecalleja - I'm just about to finish a build based around a Warmoth body today and it was a really enjoyable experience. First time I've ever attempted anything like this and I hope you have as much fun with your build as I've been having. Edited to add: if an oil finish interests you, @Chienmortbb suggested Crimson's guitar finishing oil to me in another thread. I've used it to great effect on my Warmoth (which is swamp ash). I think it'd be amazing with your mahogany but of course you might be after a harder finish.
  5. I love an oil finished bass - I’m a total sucker for it. Similarly, I love an unfinished neck, at least the playing area. I think I just really like to see and feel the wood.
