    Does anyone know where i can get any info on how to do this either on a completed bass, or a bass being built, fretboard off. Yes im aware of sims and stuff but im looking for DIY.

    I could have sworn someone had made some kind of tutorial or pictorial on this. I have done LED powered fiber optics and explained it on this site multiple times. (try a search for fiber optic or LED install)

    I think i just might try this on the bass im buiding im just about the stage where this could be easlily done. Im thinking i'll light both the side markers and face markers.
    Im doing a little research on possible having the colors change as well with fading from one to the other.
    Oh the ideas.....
