Picture one: Ugly sticker (first action was to remove the sticker), ugly pickguard, fake knobs, dirty bass.
Picture two: Neck crack
I cleaned al the parts, bought a replacement pickguard. Next step: to my luthier. He did a great job:
- The neck crack is fixed
- The frets are crowned
- The bass has a lovely setup
Picture three: Bass in current condition
Picture four: The repaired neck
The bass is from '78 and has a lovely neck. It is a real player, and i'm very happy with the end result!
