Warwick Corvette copy by Quincy rebuild

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

This is rebuild of Warwick copy by Quincy. I’ve purchased her for 70£. Anyway, here’s the topic where it’s started. 

So I’ve started rebuilding her. Sanding, sanding, sanding...and it looks like nice grain. Wanna put stain on her and then finishing oil. Don’t decide what colour yet. Some pics🙂

For £70 I'd like to think you've got a real bargain. I'd love to be in your position. It looks great. (And I'm a Warwick fan)

Thinking to put black stain on her, then sand it of. Then green, maybe blue or red  stain...can’t decide which🤦🏻‍♂️😂 mayby combination green blue? Well... I’ll keep you updated.

That would look really cool. If you use spirit stains they still let you see the wood grain. You can get them from "Chestnut Finishes" or Hampshire Sheen".

Mark Saban-Smith does some useful videos on YouTube about finishing. He does it on turned bowls, but the principle is the same.

Actually I’ll use water base stain by crimson guitars. Been watching countless videos on Bens youtube...quite like him and his knowledge. And recently I’ve used their oil to finish a bass. Turns great...needs final sanding and buffing of course. So wanna try their stains.

Neck gonna be natural finish. I like satin necks so something similar. Headstock will be black with my Logo (basically similar  as Rockbass....but Popbass😂, my nick name Pop.)

VERY yes! That blue is lush. I am afraid I am going to add to the chorus asking for a matching headstock.

So I’ve put third coat on, let it cured, and then first coat of penetrating oil and pics are after first coat of high gloss oil. Still wet.

Matching headstock. To be honest, after replies of you, I’m starting thinking about it😂. Will see😉

anyway...anybody has left handed precuted black nut for 5 strings Corvette? Or even blank one? Got only white bones ones. I’ll buy it.

And now is time for some fretwork.

Satin, satin, satin!

Good choice on the matching headstock.

Looks like you're doing a truly terrible job... you best finish it and send it to me to put in the 'bin' for you. 😁 

 

Looks like you're doing some good work there sir! Looking forward to seeing the finished article. 

 

P.S. I like the matching headstock, shows it's unique and also not pretending to be a Warwick!

Really really like the range of shades of blue and almost purple hues in there. Cracking job!

Looks very 'Marrakech Blue'. Majorelle Blue I think the technical name is. Or 'Burple' to some...

I am (now) aware that keeping it all matt and suede like is not an option, but the colour without the shinyness makes me want to take sandpaper to a bass NOW!

Thanks guy. Your comments keeps me going👍 
But now I’m facing a small problem. Obviously the neck wood is different then body one. So headstock colour is lighter. I’ll try to put more coats of finishing oil. Seems like more coats, more darker colour.

any different suggestions?
