    I've got a 70's fretless p-bass neck I'd like to epoxy.
    How many coats?
    Should I sand between coats?
    Thanks.

    Jaco used six to seven coats, with a paintbrush (or so he said in an interview I heard). As far as sanding goes, I don't know about that, as I haven't tried it myself, but I think if you apply six or seven thin coats, and make sure that they are even, sanding would not be necessary.

    Good luck! :cool:

    P.S. - If you've got some extra cash lying around, I would recommend having this guy do it . . .

    I've heard from friends that he does amazing work (and the pictures don't look that bad either).
     
  3. Harris' got the method down to an art.

    Having played two of bass' that underwent his procedure, I can definitely say it is worth the money.

    Sand between coats, it helps the coats stick together.
