My newly Frankensteined bass!

    After a long wait in my closet, my beloved and dear Dean has resurfaced with a new neck. It was originally a Dean Edge 1 (my first bass) that I had half destroyed, and then retired after I got a new bass. I've decied to break the old thing out now though, but with many changes.


    First off, I had found the neck warped, and replaced it with a new one from one of my buddies Deans. Then I replaced the pups with active Deans (don't know what model) and put them direct out, with an improvised ground. I also de-fretted the neck, and it is now waiting for epoxy. Enjoy!

    Anybody have a link to a good, simple epoxy tutorial? If its in "layman's terms" that'd be dandy.

    It is not TOO Frankensteined! I think you did a good job cobbling things together, given what was available.

    Thanks! It plays a lot better than when I put it away, and looks better too (I had spilled white paint all over it....)
