    ANALOG BASS REBORN.

    I'm still posting the work as to how I got it to this point on the other thread, but pretty much finished with the exception of maybe the series/parallel mod that @Eilif suggests. Also thanks @charlie monroe for the BWB pickguard suggestion.

    Pretty happy with how it came out- the finish work on the back isn't quite as good a match for the color but I had the mix down pretty well by the time I worked on the front.

    Mostly just elbow grease- didn't really cost much at all except for the $4 worth of nail polish. I did have some tools and compound, sandpaper, etc. though).

    Great work. Your finish repairs took it from looking like a weirdly abused bass to an instrument with some honest play wear.

    The guard and knobs elevate it nicely and look really sharp with that color.

  7. I live like 2 hours south of Buff....lol Bills may be on the rise though...I don't like the Bills but I get a lot of the teams' info where I live cause most of my friends are bills fans. Great city, resilient die hard blue collar people, and I've never had a bad time in the City of Buffalo.
