    Hello CS Gang!
    I am now a proud owner of a CS Sean Hurley Bass in aged Charol Frost. Realy great Sounding, lightweight Bass and the Muting System is great, althoug it pitches the notes because it increases the Tension of the Strings.

    I thought about looking for a Pino, test both and keep one but selling one of them would probaly break my Heart...

    You can adjust the screws on the muting system, so it doesn't mute that hard but it will not mess with the intonation then. There is a sweet spot of good intonation and the right amount of mute. Looking great in that color!

    Very nice... if I were to buy another FCS, this would likely be it.

    Grats!

    congrats for the bass this looks amazing
    Can I ask you a quick question: How do you adjust the truss rod? I am thinking getting a similar one but I don’t want to take the neck off for every adjustment
    Thanks

    Hello to all!

    I had to post here for quite some time, but I am back. :)

    My CS '64 had to undergo a surgery back in September - the neck developed a twist, and so special treatment was required.

    A refret was involved, and I opted for something bigger than the original Vintage fretwire (width = 0.080", height = 0.043"): I went with the Stewart-MacDonald Medium/Higher fretwire (width = 0.092", height = 0.048"). I am really happy with this choice, and I like it better than the original offering (well, choice).

    The treatment worked well, and as far I can tell, the neck is perfectly straight since I got my loved one back, with very low action. :)

    Hi Midak!

    Good to see you back. :)

    If you are the original owner, the Fender Custom Shop offers a lifetime warranty on the neck and body. Were you able to get the work done through the FCS?
