Well I finally finished my Parts J-bass. I refinished it flat black and I'm really happy with the results, just thought I'd give you a little photo album of the process. Not horribly detailed, but just some of the things that I had to do. It all started with this. The body was supposedly an Ash Japanese made J-bass. Little paint removal reveals a ply body with a veneer top. Definitely a lot of dings I had to repair, but the neck pocket was the worst.
