AT LAST! I defreted (and refinished) my old 4 stringer

  1. So here's the deal.. I had tought about defreting this guy since long ago.. but hadn't got the balls.. It was my first and only bass for 5 years so it is the most confortable bass I'd played, and I was very happy with the frets.. I mean.. they were in good shape.. also better than my fretted 5.. which was a victim of stainless steel roundwounds and agressive playing.. So here's the deal..

    THis is how it looked before the surgery:

  2. this is how it looks now:
