    Wish I could say that's never happened to me...

    Steve just sent me a new Corian bridge last time I asked him. Can't remember if he charged me or not, but if he did, it wasn't much.

  2. I ordered a couple samples in different colors. I was gonna do it anyway, so no big deal, now I can accessorize.

    Years ago I used some wood epoxy putty to make some bridge mock-ups. It’s cheap, dries hard, quickly, easy to mold and file down. My plan was to fine tune the ideal height for the bridge, then use that as a model to make a corian bridge. The wood epoxy worked so well I just ended up using it instead. In service over a decade. Easiest, most precise floating bridge I ever made.

    I often wonder that when looking at my two Wishbasses. Questions like: Why did he make the blemished side the top? Really--he didn't sand that at all? Did he run out of wood accidentally, or did he actually intend to just have a sliver of a different cut on the end there? Extend the soundboard all the way up the neck under the fingerboard? Interesting solution....

    First, I wanna see pics of your Wishbasses!

    Second, Mr. W actually *likes* knots and imperfections in the wood, he finds them beautiful and natural and special and non-boring.

    Thanks eli. Wasn't me, this bass had lots of help, from different parts of the world. I need to do a build thread for it!

    Tremendous amount of communication with John East in the height of pandemic.....

    That MMSR module was purchased a few years ago, several installers had a go at it, but couldn't make the mid sweep function operable. The entire module minus pickup went back to John who installed a battery led indicator and passive tone switch.

    Yes, it's the BOMB!

    Someday, I’ll get around to it. I always seem to have another bass ahead of it.

    Wow,
    That Hyper is lovely.

    I may mentioned it before but for interested Chicagoland folks there is a Wishbass for sale at "Players Guitars" in Worth, IL. I think it's a longhorn model.
     
  19. Wish just lowered the prices on a bunch of his Wishbass and Wishnevsky listings on eBay. Go get '

    none.
    Yeah! I just got my cherry 28" scale Minnie and it's a little champ. His CD is really cool as well. Highly recommend to get a copy of that too.
