    New 1998....well, new to me...I should have polished it but....what do you think? I make them for P bass also. No drilling required...attaches with the pickguard screws in a minute or two. Hillman gasser Oct 18 054.

  2. Different from “normal.” I like it. Stainless?

    Does that double as a bottle opener? Well done!

    Skip polishing, have it powder coated whatever color you want.

    Good job; now take it off and make the holes bigger so the screws just don't slip through (takes the place of counter sinking.) They'll sit lower and look much better. While you have it off polish it too.
    What did you use to fill the space between the body and the thumb rest behind the pickguard?

    Its not touching the body... only secured on the pickguard with a thin layer of cardboard to avoid scratching ...utilizes the pickguard screws
