    Hello friends,

    I just installed these little pickguards for easy slap and pick technique . I don't know about you , but I love to slap and Wal basses have to much room between the strings and top wood surface. What do you think ?

    I don't like it, and I think it is a crime to drill holes on the top of a Wal bass :rollno:

    For the record, I slap all the time on my Wals without any problem.

    If the pick guard makes it more playable it's all right

    Ok Wal Mates, this is not just about WAL basses, but this is a good trick to make you Gloss WAL finish (or any other bass) looks like a HOT ROD Show Car Mirror Gloss finish !


    Hello,

    It's a very easy and fun process, all that you have to do is to buy the following products. In US you'll pay about U$50 for all. Attention, this is just to be used on a Gloss finished bass, not Satin !

    The secret is :

    Microfiber cloth
    Meguiar's Scratch X2.0 , scratch remover
    Meguiar's Solo - Cut & Polish Cream 86
    Meguiar's Gold Class Carnauba Plus WAX

    You just read the instructions but I brief description of the process is :

    1) First Cut the microfiber cloth in 3 3"x3"pieces
    2) Put some drops of Meguiar's X2.0 and buff it hard in circular motion. X2.0 will eliminate all major scratches left by your nails, slap technique and hard use on the Gloss Varnish .
    3) Clean and buff it with a cotton piece.
    4) Put some drops of Meguiar's Solo and repeat the process in 1 and 2. But use the 2nd piece of the microfiber cloth.
    5) Use the Carnauba WAX, read the instructions .Use the 3rd piece of the microfiber cloth.

    Do all this things at least 2 times, to have more fun it's better to do the 2nd time day after ! It will be get tired with all these physical motions ! LOL !

    PS : Remove the strings before start.
