+3001 cant wait to hear it.
That turned out so good!
That came out really well.
That is a stunning instrument Roger. Be proud.
Amazing work on this bass Roger!
Holy moly! You go away for a few weeks and look what happens. A guitar is born! Well.....a bass. But you know what I mean.
Great job. It looks amazing.
Wow, I get to chime in right behind our missing pal, Nosmo! Can't say it any better than the last 50 posters or so--well, well, very well done, Roger!
Thinking about the blend pot--if the phasing work does not fix, or completely fix the problem, check what taper the blend pot is. I'm thinking what you're describing sounds like an audio (log) taper, and I think in this application, you'd want a linear taper. Just a thought. Can't wait to hear it.
Thank you, Rod. I'm currently working on one donation guitar and have 2 more yet to get done. On top of those, I have a close friend who's also my mechanic, and he just did me a major favor, so I'm going to build one for him as a gift. There shouldn't be any shortage of Dog Tired threads .
Thanks, Rob. I hope to get a vid tomorrow.
Thank you, Michael. Hopefully that'll happen tomorrow.
Thank you, Lisa. I'm so relieved it's over with .
Thanks, Brian. I am pretty proud of it. You know, like you're proud of the black eye you get when you stand up to the bully .
NOSMO!!! Hey buddy! We've missed you around here. I guess my summoning from earlier in the thread worked. Good to see you back, my friend. And thanks for the nice words.
Thanks so much, Rick. I'm just grateful it's done.
For the blend pot, the phase switching didn't work. I bought the harness as a complete, assembled unit, so I'll give the guy a call and see what he can tell me.
Yes best basr gear are great I was looking gor a fix for a stienburger base I was repairing for a friends son. They helped out with great info and supplied the replacement EMG circuit and it turned up in Australia so quickly. By the way great base
Any rosewood follow you home Nosmo??
That bass is soooo nice.
Very nice job buddy.
I feel for you ref the setup. Bass isn't quite the same as guitar is it. I've no experience playing one so when I had to replace a nut for a mate even that simple job was not as straight forwards as I imagined it would be. I couldn't even find definitive answers as to which fret to hold down for determining the clearance from the nut to first fret.
Looks like it all came together for you in the end though and turned out well. Looks beautiful man.
Gorgeous! Those close up pictures really shows all the love you poured in this build. I'm happy your bass players loved it. I'm sure you will figure out the last few details.
Yeah, I was very impressed with his customer service and knowledge.
Yeah, man. Spill the beans. Any good stuff around Nosmo Enterprises?
Thanks, Nick. I appreciate that.
No kidding. I know what to expect with a regular guitar, but this thing had me baffled.
Thanks, Andre. I spent the morning getting some full-on beauty shots. See below. Sorry there's so many, but the light this morning and the backdrop really set things off nicely.
You've been working on the back yard a bit there!
What do all the knobs do?
Yeah well, you know. Just something to do in my spare time.
That's actually the student union at OSU.
Top 2 are volume and blend. The bottom 3 are treble, mid, and bass.
Speaking of functions, I got the blend pot squared away. Turns out the problem that I the bridge ground also connected to the shared ground on the blend pot. It's supposed to go to the back of the volume pot instead. The blend pot ground is supposed to be shared by the neck and bridge pup grounds only.
No - I've been in the Gulf o' Mehico. Just had really, really slow internet. Oh yeah, actually had to work a little as well.
No RW, but I do have a couple acoustic sets. Pao Ferro & Padauk. Didn't want to talk about them too much considering the mando fiasco. I literally haven't touched the mandos in 6 months or so. Haven't given up. Just haven't done anything with them.
Roger, long journey but worth it in the end. Great job! Finishing can be the hardest part of the whole process. I used shellac on the necks I am working on. I like it.
