    Almost done with final layers of finish and itching to get onto assembling stage. Thought the TO had an aged look to it and had to drag out the natural neck on my J Bass to compare and was surprised to discover both looked almost the same? From memory I thought the J Bass was lighter than that??? Here are the comparison shots....

    Now shown with the body. Whilst maple and basswood are fairly light coloured timber, basswood typically is a little bit darker and really pleased with how the neck & body colours are a very close match.....

    Thanks Guv.

    Just ordered an aftermarket bridge this morning and not sure if that will arrive before end of this month. Getting close to calling the finish done and will have to make a start on the electronics soon.
