    It sure didn't look too shabby before restoration at all! Love that stained alder/tort/rosewood combo.
     
  5. Great restore! Must sound sweet through that B15!
     
  6. Must have been hell to remove the stain from the wood.

    Beautiful restoration, but I kind of liked how it was too.

    Nice restoration and I can understand why you wanted to do it, but to be honest I prefer it the way it was.

    But what I prefer is not the point, is it? Enjoy your beautiful bass!

    BTW, I have a '62 Jazz and a B15N. The combination is just heavenly.
