    6 String Bass Project

    I've now done 3 coats on the front and 3 on the back and cavity cover which I've veneered just to give the back a bit of colour, Next job is to solder up the pickups, drill for the ground to the bridge, fit the jack socket plate and strap buttons then I think I'm ready to string it up 😁

  3. I've just checked and it's the same seller using 2 different accounts,1 private and 1 business! The listing on the private account tells you to contact the business account for more details??
  4. I dont know if I'm missing something but these look like they are the same bass but with 2 different prices?? https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F254125506875 https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F273701857362

    I decided to not veneer the pickups in the end......... I think it looks better without!!....... 😀

    I've had an idea that I'm not sure on and need people's opinions......... Would it be too much if I veneered the tops of the pickups or would it be better to leave them black?? 🤔

    I personally can't see the problem with the headstock maybe shave a little bit off?? But if Fleabag is happy then that's all that matters!! 😁

    6 String Bass Project

    After a few stupidly busy weeks at work I finally got some time to do some more! I've done the matching headstock now and got a few coats of wipe in satin poly........... Control cavity is all routed out just got to make the cover and the electrics have arrived so I'll fit them in the next few days then its finishing time!!........ I'm considering getting some block inlay decals for the neck which I think will finish it off nicely 😀
  9. If it wasn't leopard print I think I would take a punt on it!! 😁 https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F401709822901

    What floats your boat?

    I kind of echo what most others have said I like most genre's of music except one that I can't stomach and that's jazz free form/trad whichever flavour it comes in! I just can't listen to it I have certain bands that I listen to every week RATM, Iron Maiden, Phrophets of Rage, Green Day, The Black Crowes, Audioslave, Mumford and Sons, RHCP, AC/DC, The Pogues, (early) Guns N Roses and The Ravens Age etc so it's a quite diverse pool but if I like something then I like it!!

    New Fenderbird Project Planned

    I thought that it might be heavy so it's going to be chambered so hopefully that with keep the weight down a bit I'm going to construct the body with a 25mm ply core with 6mm front and back the 25mm core will be chambered like this..............
  12. After following @Christine's Thunderbird build it has swayed me (as I was never really a fan of them) to make my own...... It's going to be a Fenderbird but I haven't decided whether it's going to be 4 or 5 string as yet?? As I've been told they suffer from neck dive would a 4 string would be better to keep the weight of the headstock down or would the difference in weight be negligible??......... If I decide to go down the 4 string route I would string it BEAD anyway I know this isn't going to be a popular choice but I'm going to make the body out of chambered plywood (I tried one of my friends homemade ply bodied bitsa Telecaster and his American deluxe Telecaster and couldn't tell the difference in the sound if anything the ply bodied Tele had better sustain so that got me thinking??) it's going to be painted and I'm leaning towards Yellow with black hardware and pickguard something a bit like this? With a maple/maple block neck........... I don't really like the 3 point bridges tha t are normally on them so I'm thinking about a tun-o-matic bridge instead and I might go active with active/passive push/pull bypass like on my Quincy, 5 string and 6 string build
