I posted a question about something I could use to protect my Tune's rosewood fretboard during my ham-fisted attempts at slapping. This led to an interesting suggestion by basiclybass, who has used an adhesive mylar film applied to his fretboard. Previous discussion I couldn't find the self-adhesive mylar anywhere, so I ordered some standard .002" mylar sheet ($1.64 for material, $6.75 for shipping On the suggestinon of TAP plastics, I used 3M Super 77 spray adhesive. Instead of risking my gigging bass, I experimented on a de-fretted Steinberger Spirit that I bought for around $100 from HeavyDuty. I used masking tape and plastic bags to protect everything but the Steinie's rosewood board. I pre-cut a strip of Mylar about twice as wide as the fretboard. I sprayed a small amount of adhesive on the board, and some on the mylar. Let it dry for about 30 seconds, and applied the mylar, starting at the nut and then to the end of the neck. Flattened it out with a credit card -- it went on very easily. I was worried that I hadn't used enough adhesive -- the clear mylar combined with the adhesive gives a sort of mottled appearance over the rosewood -- appearance might be different if more adhesive was used. I let it dry for about an hour, and strung it up. I've been playing it for the last two hours or so. Results: sounds great! Plays great! It's a very low-friction material -- I can do fretted-style bends on the board easily, without feeling like I'm scarring it. The material seems pretty much indestructible -- unless the adhesive gives, I can't see it ever breaking down. The sound, as mentioned in the last post, certainly has more snap and zing. It's not as woody a tone as before. With some eq, the slap tone is quite cool -- not like a fretted, but more so than before. I'm not a great slapper (yet) so take this with a grain of salt! I'm very happy! I'll play the steinberger for a while to make sure I like the thing, and then probably do it to my Tune bass. Hope this was useful! Let me know if you've got any questions!
