BCers Prepared to Help Fix a Bass


Grangur

Recommended Posts

In the time I've been here I've learned that not all BCers are able to tweak their basses or do soldering jobs. So, this list is for those who could do with a hand to do those small jobs.

Some folk listed here may do the job for free, others may make a small charge, or charge for parts. The cost is down to you to negotiate with the other member.

If you'd like to be added to the list, simply post in this thread.

Down South on the sunshine coast - I'm always doing odd jobs :) not least of all wiring repairs, setups, minor repairs, mods - feel free to PM, you don't get if you don't ask ;)

I do usually make a small charge for most things :P lots of pots & parts in stock, my man cave is currently undergoing restoration, but work as normal.

If you do drop in you'll be most welcome :D

Canterbury, pretty good with basic electrics and woodwork re bass and guitars with shedloads (literally) of spare parts.

Don't ask me to play the bloody things though, I'm crap.

Yes, good thread

I love it! Thanks Beedster. :D

I'm good with woodwork repairs and setups, sorting electrics on passives and soldering. I've sprayed bodies and necks, done some veneering, done re-frets and fixed a truss-rod. Happy to look at most things.

I should point out this is down south on the Sunshine Coast near Hastings, not down south on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. Just to be clear. :D P.S. John is a very nice man and his work is of the highest standard.
