Five string fretless build starting

  1. I got it all back together, I need to do a proper set up on it, but it feels much better now. You can see how much I took off the fingerboard (there was a little gob of CA on the right hand side, so that side was boosted up a little in this picture). I filed the slots lower after this:
    And the bridge recess went well, I only put it down about 3/32nds.
    When I put it all back together all the nuts were loose - from the RO sander. The middle string saddle loosened completely up and when I picked it up the pieces fell on the ground. It took a good 20 minutes to find the 3 pieces. ugh. I can't find the nut for the switch either, I'll find it eventually.
