    its true GAS and BAS may yet to be medically proven and surrounded in said conspiracy theory. and i applaud your denial and plausable immunity, but I have concerns that Igor may be infected....please, keep an eye on him just to be safe

    Igor seems fine, though he has been playing country lately.....Im sure I heard some John Denver drifting up from the lab the other day.

    Any suggestions / advice on my fretboard?
    wondering if i should apply the lemon oil (dunlop65) before I seal/clear the neck?
    was thinking i would oil the fretboard and let dry, then mask up and start clearing the back of the neck, or does fretboard oil go on last?
    does it even matter which way round?

    cheers and thanks in advance
    Guv and Adam

    Id mask the board off, get you clears done and then once thats all done, give the board a going over with the lemon oil. Give it a good coat to start with and let that soak in. The board may drink that up and you may need to re apply in spots that seem fairly dry.
    Once it all seems even, wipe off your excess and give it a bit of a polish up with a dry cloth. It should feel slick and smooth under your fingers. Then string up and enjoy!!

    can i safely just push neck tight ito pocket and bolt in the commemnce brige measuring?

    Hey Guvna, yeah I'm all good thanks. Yeah I do that bolt on the neck first, measure the scale length and mark it with tape. Make sure you put the pickups in to try line up the poles with the strings. The bridges have ample movement so you don't have to have the bridge mm perfect but main thing is to line up the string offsets to edge of fingerboard and line up strings to poles. I love my JBA-4 it's my go to bass. Good luck buddy and keep hydrated on the job haha


    thanks for reply wokka, be sure to hydrate

    Wise comments from Woks.

    Simple but easy to stuff up is making sure that neck is well seated on all sides in the neck pocket and that strings do in fact pass over the PUP poles as they should.

    Next thing is to wind the G string bridge saddle a fair way forward so that you have a lot of room to wind the E string back towards base of Bridge plate as there is not a whole lot of intonation range available on the stock kit bridge if you choose to use a medium gauge set of strings (I speak from experience and had to buy a replacement bridge).

    From inner side of nut to top of G String saddle should measure exactly 34" and then you are good to go.

    Cheers, Waz

    Thanks Waz,
    going for only stock stuff for now, much to learn yet
    I managed to get few coats of clear on, enough to start drilling all the holes before more finish coats, so getting there

    All good mate.

    Just a big 'Heads Up' on the lack of intonation range on stock kit bridge thus making the scale length measurements all the more important.
