    Picked up a tube of GOOP Industrial Strength Contact Adhesive and Sealant.

    Couldn't resist scanning the card -- seems we can all avoid those costly trips to the luthier!!

    Speaking. My advice is, it will be hard to make anything stick on this one, Bob . . .
     
  9. CV - You made my evening. That is great.

    Bob - do you get a residule for every tube sold?

    There's a guy in Honolulu, a very popular entertainer, who has a wood screw through the front of his bass, into the soundpost, as well as another one that presumably meets up with the bass bar. I think it's a Kay; I couldn't bear to look at it for long. He favors a white finish on his basses; this is achieved with liberal coatings of Krylon appliance paint. These basses were once offered to me for use on a recording session; I politely declined and flew my bass over from Maui instead.
