not yet..but i plan on getting some for my eb-3....lets see how it goes...i think im going to do a design rather than blocks...
Hey Eric..not really inlays, but stickers. I have seen pics of basses with them, and they actually look pretty good. Hippiesandwich on the Dudepit had a Jazz bass with those, I suggest you mail him for more info....
I am very soon going to try them. Just bought a set.
My warwicks gonna look groovy
Hippiesandwich's bass looks awesome too!
Which one? I think that he owns hundreds. No, seriously...
WHat about if you wanted to remove them later?
Then you peel them off and clean of the fretboard with adhesive remover,
Yup, I took a aquamarine metallic Fender Jazz V and gave it the abalone block "inlay" treatment and it did look pretty cool. I don't own the bass anymore (traded it towards another Benavente Vortex ), so I don't have pics online at the moment, but I can post some later this evening if you want to see. They were pretty easy to work, although it is worth noting that while they are removeable, removing them destroys them (they can't be re-used).
His aquamarine metallic Fender Jazz V.
I am a member at the DudePit and I have seen the pictures!
oval would look pretty cool.
I sent them several emails and never got a single answer, they look great but the customer service is bad
from the hippiesandwich archives:
Well I appreciate all of the responses. Icertainly didn't realize that there were so many people aware of this ?? "technique" Thanks for sending the pics hippiesandwich it does look awesome. I've learned in my few years on earth that when something looks too good to be true..... I guess that I will have to keep saving for that Smith/Tobias/Alembic/Benavante/Lakland/FendercustomJazz
Thanks for the picpost hippy. Looks great! I was waiting for your pic.
Thats a pau ferro FB on that lovely specimen right? Outstanding job! Man I can't wait to see these with wenge wood.
Not bad, not bad at all. Are those the 'pre-cut' (link) product for your bass??? Or did you have to cut those.
It's funny where those links take you to, maybe someone should tell him his 'zipper' is down!
Those "blocks" were cut from larger sheets. I didn't get the aquamarine/abalone thing out of my system though, so I had Chris Benavante build me this!
too bad they don't have black blocks. I'd love to put them on my OLP to have a "Geddy Lee" Stingray
I have a picture of that bass saved on my computer from some other thread -- I love that look! It's gorgeous! The colour, the wood, the binding on the neck, the inlays...all of it. Beautiful! This guy does real works of art.
