Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

im in the early stages of getting the parts together for a P bass

 

i have a paulownia bass body

fender high mass bridge

schaller vintage tuners

manchester, primer, paint, gloss

 

im interested in getting these

montys retrowind p pickup https://www.montysguitars.com/collections/bass-pickups/products/retro-wind-p-bass-pickup

John East p retro onboard preamp https://www.east-uk.com/product/p-retro/
 

Im stuck on where to get the neck but I would like a rosewood block inlay J neck. But don’t have a big budget.


 

if you can suggest anything else I will need and where to get it that would be much appreciated

Unless you want the grain to show through I`d suggest grain filler by the bucket load, Paulownia will suck a lot of paint up as it`s very open pored and also very soft! I was going to suggest a neck from Northwest guitars but they`re out of stock, looks like I got mine at the right time! Good luck with the build.

Thanks for the info

 

how much grain filler do you think I need.

 

company called guitarbuild can do us a neck for under £400

See my build thread for paulownia - total nightmare, not just grain filler but also paint
