Feedback for The Bass Doc

Recommended Posts

Howard made me a scratch plate for my Pawn Shop Mustang. The fit is perfect and is so much better looking, imo, to the white one that it comes with. Excuse the fingerprints.

Ta Howard!

Howard came to my aid last week with a great deal on a Fender P-bass pickup. I've just picked it up from the post office this morning. Don't know when I'll get to try it out, as I'll need a few more days to finish the re-finish, but I'm looking forward to plugging this one in.

Thanks very much!

Thanks to Uncle Horrid for making me a faux 'anodized' pick guard, which I neglected to screw on properly in my haste for a pic:



Thanks very much, Howard! Another great job. :)

Howard made a tort pickguard for an old Squier that I`ve just acquired. Gave me a couple of options with regards to materials/costs etc, good comms, and the item was made and sent out within a few days. Excellent all round.

Just got the cream plate for my Coronado, and a black one for my La Cab.

A speedy service with excellent results.

Che-ors Bonny Laad!

Howard did a little conversion job for me - routed out my tatty old Musicmaster bass to accept a P pickup which he fitted along with a new scratchplate, loom and knobs. Plus additionally a new s/p for a jazz bass. Great comms throughout, totally perfect job. I couldn't be more happy!

Howard is a great guy to deal with.

He made me a couple of plates for my Precision bitsa and even re made one of them when it wasn't a perfect fit.

Brilliant comms and a great asset to the forum.

Thanks again!

Howard has just done me a brown tortie plate for my 2001 Sonic Blue Jazz.
Wouldn't say it was a good job, but not sure I need to bother with putting the screws back in :lol: .
And it looks the poodles privates.
Top job, top product, very fast service. Many thanks Howard.
As Arnie would say "I'll be back".
Cheers,
Karl.

This morning I found my new scratchplate in the smelly bin where the postie had kindly left it.

Howard managed to make a perfect fit white pearl plate from a hacked up white original with c**p cardboard template after I dug out my Squier P5 (JJ pups) to fit a EMG split coil in the neck position to give the more aesthetically correct PJ layout.

He kindly put up with my rambling emails, huge delays whilst I gave up and then finally turned it round very quickly after I eventually got a mate to cut the template and managed to brave the post office to get it to him. All in the run up to Christmas too!

Thanks again Howard, pleasure doing my second business transaction with you, over 20 years after the first!

Howard refurbished and refinished a 1974 Hayman 4040 for me. What a stunning job. His work was really cut out on the neck, which was badly bowed and needed extensive work including planing the fingerboard, re-fret, replacing the black binding and re-lacquer. Now it's like new.

Thanks very much Uncle, I am in awe of your skills. This is a very special instrument! :)

Played it at rehearsal last night - it's a monster. With both pickups on it roars like a chunky beast and shakes the floor!

Howard transformed my old Westone Thunder Jet into a rock monster. Routed out for a Musicman pickup, custom scratchplate to cover up at the front, new backplate at rear for easier access to the gubbins, wired to an existing P-retro. Absolutely top job, couldn't be more pleased.

Howard made me a new plate for my Squier Bass VI.

Extremely quick turnaround resulting in a perfect fitting plate.

All hail the Bass Doc!

Thanks again.

I have been struggling to find tuner bushes for an old Jap neck project. I met up with Will (2X18) a couple of weeks ago and he advised me to contact Howard.
One week later I have the bushes.
Thanks Howard, it will be great to get this thing back together again.
All the best,
Mark.

Howard has just made me two pickguards for my Deluxe Precision, a 4 ply tort and a 3 ply white one. Both are brilliant, the tort is honestly STUNNING. My bass has never looked better. Highly recommended.

Just received a beautiful tort scratchplate for my Korean Squier Precision. No difference in quality (and importantly, colour) than the one on my US Precision. Awesome as always.

Same for me Lozz, fabulous yet again Bass Doc.
If you want to see some of his work go to forum "Gear", sub forum "bass guitars", topic "where has all the decent tortoiseshell gone".
Many thanks yet again Howard, fabulous boss!
No doubt will be in touch soon :D

Needed a new pickguard for an old Jap P copy; in my misguided youth I had doodled on the original and basically wrecked it. Howard made a copy for me from the original and it fits perfectly. Excellent work at a very reasonable price!

Many thanks Howard, for the pick guard for my 1970s East German bass. You've done a nice neat job.

Thanks again
