not bad not bad. I think the atk pickguard is cute though.
Clear one coming soon
now only if the fretboard was naked...
Well, it's not completely naked. It does have a G-string.
Is my Carvin Naked enough? (Birdseye fretboard with no dots, swamp ash body)
thats pretty naked. but i'm still waiting for an unlined fretless with a clear finish to pop up.
You are not alone...
And mine is even more naked... I took even the finish off.
Of course.. I no longer have it , been years since I sold it, but I replaced it last week with a USATK and Im very happy!!
Here's my ash Jazz that has been stripped and tung-oiled.
It's currently wearing an aftermarket lined fretless neck, as seen in the pic.
Actually only 1 of my 14 basses has a pick guard. 2000 P Special. I really like seeing the wood.
Hmm, butt nekkid!
I have been thinking about doing that to my black ATK 305 Korean since I got it almost a year ago. This thread is giving me the push I need. It has the (three piece, i think) ash body and I like the bare wood look an feel also. But how tough is it to strip that thick poly finish? Or to keep the black from melting into the open grain if using a chemical stripper?
But those two "naked" ATK's look great guys!
Without the paint stripper is tought.. but it can be done.
I did mine completely by hand... it took me a while, but it was worth it. I found that the first coats are clear. So you could just sand off the black coat, and leave the clear one and polish it. (I did that with mine)
Or.. go the other, easier route. Use a paint stripper and then refinish with tung oil.
That ash always looks good. My ATK300 was black also.
Nooooo! You need the pickguard!
lets see some stingrays and sterling naked???
if people want to trow of their pickguards for one shot???
I'll be kicking!!!
I seriously don't know if this joke will ever get old.
Here's my trusty old battle axe!
