  1. Thereโ€™s some info here on oils ๐Ÿ™‚ https://www.guitaranswerguy.com/12-lemon-oil-debate/
  2. I read that the ,pure full strength lemon oils , are not good for your fretboard because they are too intense , and can dry them out but the Dunlop oil only has a tiny amount of lemon which helps to clean , the rest is mineral oil.
  3. I bought a pretty grimy jazz a few years back , which had been stored uncovered , and I cleaned the rosewood fretboard with baby wipes , which have a soft soap , and then lightly oiled it with Dunlop fretboard 65 lemon oil , to re nourish the wood , and buffed it up with an old t shirt, it came up a treat ๐Ÿ™‚
  4. Or reggae ๐Ÿ˜€
  5. Iโ€™ll see whatโ€™s there around that thickness , if not Iโ€™ll cut you some , thereโ€™s lots of hardwood offcuts there and Iโ€™ll pop them in the post, ๐Ÿ™‚
  6. Ricky, donโ€™t buy anything yet , Iโ€™ll see whatโ€™s in my joinery shop tomorrow ๐Ÿ‘
  7. The Dub shim sounds like a good name for a reggae band ๐Ÿ˜€. Iโ€™d stick to wood for a shim if I was you, eBay sell various offcuts for a few quid , keep us posted ๐Ÿ‘
  8. Your English is fine Figue2B, I wish my french was as good ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you get the sale or trade you are looking for, itโ€™s a very nice bass ๐Ÿ‘
  9. I believe itโ€™s to add tension to the String, and something to do with the pitch , but Iโ€™m not entirely sure, Maybe someone could answer this ๐Ÿ™‚
  10. Iโ€™m exactly the same, Iโ€™ve even taken pictures ready to sell them , then I remember why I bought them in the first place , and keep them ๐Ÿ˜€
  11. As Andy says hondo || , just a different motif on the headstock ๐Ÿ™‚
  12. Absolute bargain , how does it sound ๐Ÿ™‚
  13. Hi Ricky, 3mm is quite a thick shim , and being vinyl I think it would dull the tone, because the woods are not connected, but if you like the tone and it gives you the action you are happy with then leave it, if not change the shim for a strip of , non backed veneer . Veneers come in various thickness from about 1mm to 3mm so you may need a few to get your required thickness. Nice job btw ๐Ÿ‘
