    After seeing jtlee's listing for the beautiful MM 79 Stingray that was restored, I thought it would be cool to have a thread of "Here's how I got it :rollno:, and here's what it looks like now" :bassist:.

    I am looking at taking a beat up MIM Jazz body I have acquired that is now Black and rebuilding it to a late 70's Olympic White/Tort with 70's style block and bound neck. I thought it might inspire me and others to do some restoration and/or clean up work. Love to see the before and after pics.

    Used the search feature and could not find a similar thread, so I don't think I am deadhorse.

    Besides, who doesn't like an excuse to see more bass pics! :D
  2. O.K., so then where are YOUR pics ?

    As stated in my original post, I have not started the project yet! Desire is there, but not enough time. Hope to get started in mid July or early August after I have gathered all the parts, and when work schedule permits. In the meantime, was looking to see what magic other TB'ers have done with theirs.

    Too much talk. Not enough bass porn.

    Like this?

    I wish I still had a "before" pic because when I bought it in 1984 (it's a '78) it had been thrashed with spray paint and decals.:oops:
