Soapbar to MM conversion

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by got2getbetter, Jun 12, 2003.

  1. Hopefully I'm posting in the right place. I've got a Modulus Q4 sweetspot that I was thinking of converting to a single musicman configuration. I'm sure there'll be some routing involved so my question is, could I do this myself (I have no experience with this sort of thing), and if not, where should I take/send it keeping in mind I'm pretty poor? Also, any other comments about the project or how it may turn out soundwise are much appreciated.

    Do you have a router? You'd want a template, which you can make, but if you have no experience, you certainly run a risk.

    Your average tech/repair guy might not have the MM template to do this; probably you'll want to take it to a repair guy that also builds his own (so he'll be more likely to be set up with a good router & templates).

    Assuming you've got a router and know how to use it, extensive practise on scrap wood might be a good idea before turning it loose on your bass!
