    Hi, I now have the 1st ashbory from 1988. I need help with stringing with Thunder reds, and with setting the peg style tuners. It has Thunder reds on it, and the way they are wound on the peg, they are slipping. I’m new here.

    Hey Mike. Google stringing an Ashbory bass. Large Sound has original instructions. Hand tightening the knob in bass of tuning peg will cause it to snug up.

    Hope that helps. Keep asking if that doesn’t help.

    Hi chadds,
    Thank you. I saw that the original instructions are to use an overhand knot. Whoever strung the reds didn’t do that. I will destring and restring using the knots, and gently snug up the pegs. The diam of the red G string is much smaller than the original string type and I will try knotting and folding back the end to prevent slipping. Thanks!

    There's a club? A couple of weeks I was flipping through an old thread here and someone mentioned an Ashbory. "Hmm, what's that?" I spent an hour hunting for information followed by another hour of shopping and then there was an impulse purchase. As one does.

    It's quickly become the thing that I reach for when I just want to noodle for a couple of minutes.
