As some of you may know, I ordered a stopped C extension from KC Strings recently. I had nowhere near the budget for a custom, installed extension from some of the well-respected luthiers out there, which ran well up over two thousand dollars plus the transport of my bass to and from their shop. I did, however, have five hundred bucks, which was plenty more than enough to cover the cost of the brass KC Strings extension with shipping. Having done some woodwork before, I decided to give it a shot as the only modification to the bass was cutting the nut and screwing the 'L'brackets into the pegbox. Long story short, the install was incredibly easy, even with my minimal skills, and the extension did exactly what it was supposed to do. My bass sounds great all the way down to low "C". I even 'unofficially' have a low "B" with the amount of extension fingerboard past the "C" stop. There are pictures on various parts of my website: www.allmyheroes.org. Please forgive the poor design and inconsistency. I'm still in the 'fleshing-out' phase of my self-taught web-authorship.
