EB3 REFIN DONE!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by blendermassacre, May 9, 2010.


  1. I bought this bass from Quadzilla a few months ago: eb33.

    After a ton of sanding, killz primer, krylon off white (almost olympic white) and krylon gloss clear. I'm going to swap the bridge pup for another eb3 pickup in a month or so.

    5910229-1.
    5910234.
    5910232.

    I'm also going to order a pickguard blank to make a tort guard.

    The original bass looked cool in its reliced vintage condition ... but I like the white better.
     
  5. Beautiful! :bassist:
    How does the Hipshot compare to the original bridge?
     
  6. me too. I had a lot of thought about what color to make it. With the tord guard, I like the fender color on a "gibson" bass
     
  7. I never played it with the original bridge. Quadzilla put the supertone on before I bought it. It is a great improvement over the 3 point bridge though.
     
  8. That's a VAST improvement, and nice work. The pre-photos tell me that bass NEEDED a refin. Well done.
     
  9. Thanks. There are plenty of body dings etc that I didn't take the time to perfect, but I had 8 hours of sanding in the bass. The body is two pieces of mahogany layered on top of each other, so I didn't want to use heat or solvents to remove what was left of the finish.

    The bass is a player and playing it is awesome.

    Also note that this is my first refin. Hopefully next time I do one, the neck will not need to. Be painted.
