I thought it was you, but then your inquisitive post threw me off! Thanks again!
Sold my Super J a couple years ago and still miss it. Anyone on here selling a 4 string NG-2 or 3? There's a combustion in the classifieds I may inquire about but am really looking for a black or white Nolly.
I remember that beauty! My four-string NG-2 is a keeper. You might also post in the "Wanted" section of the classifieds...
You're right. I figured I might get better luck in the Dingwall club. I've never had luck in the wanted section.
On a side note. If the Combustions are routed to where you can move the neck pup in the NG2 spot, are NG2 pickguards your only option or would you have to have one custom made? If so, does anyone know if pickguardian has the template for that pickup config? I assume its the exact same at the NG pickguard but I don't want the stripes or carbon fiber.
There are a few 4 strings on Reverb (No NG) and a red NG on E-Bay (and it isn't from Japan).
There was just a red Ng4 string in Calgary l and m. Left the wall today I think or last night.
South store, I assume?
You can also get a NG2 to NG3 upgrade kit; it comes with the pickguard.
And fits certain ng2s. Do have they have carbon 3x pick guards yet? The 3x upgrade I had was plain plastic.
I need opinions!
I'm thinking to patch a purple heart wood-pickguard on the Lee Sklar and roughly drew 2 for it.
#1 covers more area, harder and more costly to make
#2 smaller and much cheaper
Which one should I choose?
I got the wood slab and have been contacting wood workers and cnc enigneers.
man, it's not easy as I thought...
Where do you anchor your thumb when you play?
Did you consider also adding a ramp or a thumb rest?
This is a one time cost, for a bass you will probably have for life. So I would suggest not letting cost be a factor in the decision.
I recommend choosing the one you like better.
For me, just looking at the drawings, the smaller one looks incomplete and the large one looks great.
I think the larger one looks AMAZING, awesome work! I think running pickguard out past the bridge pickup, maybe about half the width of the pickup but parallel to that line might look even better.
I think the big one looks nicer.
Because I float my thumb over the strings I don't need the thumb rest.
This will work as a pick guard when I slap and a finger ramp when I finger.
Originally #1 draft was my one and the only shape to go with.
But the builder said it would be very complicated to make with a thin layer of wood that way.
I had to put a quick adjustment
That is #2
Thanks I'll consider your idea into the final
While you're at it, you should also try extending it down even farther, another 1/4" or 1/2" so that it wraps around the neck pickup. I'd be curious to see how that looks.
I do need to ask though: Why the pickguard? Do you play hard with a pick and you're afraid of damaging the finish? Do you slap a lot and you're afraid of wearing out the finish adjacent to the G string near the neck?
Did you consider a clear one so that it would be invisible? Or are you specifically wanting the visual effect of a contrasting pickguard?
Yeah I actually like the clean look of the Sklar model. What colour is it?
Funny it's called a pick guard, because my pick never touches the wood.
I still have a mark left in the bubinga around the pickup, from my thumbnail, when i used to play fingerstyle.
