NBD

I was awoken by a man knockming upon my door, wanting to give me a few boxes.

One was this.  


Oooer, said I. 


Bargain! Spent the afternoon sanding the body down.   

The neck is already finished! I was debating on sanding back and using tinted Wudtone, because I think a deeper, darker hue would go better with the super black look I'm going for, but I'll decide after I've done the body.  Which will be black.

With a which outlined ply plate, black pickup, and crhome hardware elsewhere, should look neat.  Could sit in a rock band or a funk one :D 

Now, I'm off to get hammered and use these.

    I hope to be receiving a similar package, from the same sender tomorrow ... 

    Thinking about my finishing options.

    If I sand the finish back, yes. And I probably will, but it's got a decal on that looks nice... And is black.

    I finished with a Jimmy Saville card.

    Wait, you mean gsp?

    Yeah, I'm using wudtone because it's home friendly. Need to get some sandpaper though.

  • Nice. 
    Was it a private sale or did it come from a dealer?

    The neck will not take Wudtone as it's finished with either AC or Le Tonkinois not sure what one as it was over 5 years ago that I finish it.

    Very nice project, and a great deal too.

    Looking forward to the ensuing thread, as always !

    It will be a fantastic bass once completed, good luck  :)

    Cool, after spending some time on it, I really like the finish it has - very smooth, and not sticky so I wasn't going to bother anyway.

    Anyway, updates to come sometime next week prolly :)
