9/10/17 Play Time.

With the new CITES regulations in force regarding Rosewood it is such a pain to ship anything outside the EU which has Rosewood that I decided to build a bass for my self with this neck I made a while back. Scratch and dent pickups and hardware to keep the cost to a minimum. Just need to decide what colour to stain the top. One off pickup configuration due to what I had lying about . A RFB in the bridge and a PB in the neck.

I have been working on necks recently both guitar and bass, so now some results.

20/9/17 New builds.

First up in this new batch is a Border Reiver 5.

19/9/17 Stock J Type 4 and 5.

Sometimes the reasons for building a stock bass are pretty minor. In this case I have two pearloid scrtchplates left over. So that was enough reason to start a couple of builds.
