  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.
  6. That’s awful. His Funk Pop “doll” looks more like him. https://www.popinabox.co.uk/merch-figures/lemmy-kilmister-funko-pop-vinyl/11325793.html
  7. So yesterday I bought a stacked knob loom and plate for my pride and joy and tonight it’s in place, looking and sounding gorgeous... In between times, John was brilliant. Really quick and clear communication, parcel tracking, friendly. The loom and plate came well-packaged and the instructions were concise and clear. I’m by no means the most practical person but it was a breeze to install. Heartily recommended. Thanks John 👍
  8. First and Last and Always - The Sisters of Mercy
  9. Nine Inch Nails, Glasgow Barrowlands, May 1994. It was disappointing in as much as they didn't play long but it was a blessing because they were awful. Contrived, angst-by-the-numbers, let's-all-smash-our-instruments-on-cue garbage. Pig was support, though - so that was good.
  10. Monochrome - Helmet (or Lush, if you prefer)
  11. You Got Me Floatin' - Jimi Hendrix Experience
