Experiences building a bass guitar kit
For those of you who have wondered what those bass guitar kits are like, I've just built one, and I've describe my experiences here:
By the way, Here's the finished bass (the color is Sonic Blue)...
You idiot! it's the wrong way round! :)
(looks good apart from that :D )
Came out looking good!
Question, did you use all of the stuff for the fret leveling and crowning/polishing? Is that the complete list of what you used to work on the frets?
With the exception of masking tape to mask off the fretboard, what is shown in that first post is what I wound up using.
I had also purchased some metal fret masks (not sure of their proper name) from StewMac to protect the fretboard when leveling single frets, but I abandoned them and went instead with the masking tape when I decided to go in with the 8 inch leveler.
StewMac might also have a video on how to use a leveler. If so, I'll add it to the blog post tomorrow.
I might also recommend a small file for leveling single frets, but I'm thinking that the 8 inch leveling bar might work fine there, too.
Thanks again, and great job again also!
Thanks very much for the comments!
I'll try to add some more details to the blog post re: fret leveling. Drop by in a few days and see if there's anything useful.
