    Beginner's luck I'd say!
    I did cut the timber with a mallet and chisel before using the router, that seemed to keep it neat too. I wouldn't want to have to do it again.
    I don't think the bridge is...

    Nice! I have a brass nut on the RC4A, I like it. I managed to find a perfect replacement on eBay in brass for a good price, could save you some heartache!

    OK here's my shot:
    PB4A Frankenbass
    This is a tribute to the 'Frankenstrat' played by Van Halen, as it was in the early 1980's. There wasn't ever an official bass version, so I borrowed some of the...

    It sounds like you have been very unlucky. We have built dozens of different guitars at school and had one return in the last 5 years, but that does not look right so you might be at 0-2! I think it...

    Love it! It might be easier to cut from a blank, but I do like this 3d idea.
    The bridge I used on the RC4A was a bit thicker and a lot heavier than the MM style bridge it came with (which went on...

    Well done! That's a difficult soldering job with 2V 2T pots. Might be worth a careful dig around to see why it wasn't working straight away as otherwise it might come and bite you when you are...

    I have a similar bridge on my RC4, it’s great, but I had to recess it into the body a bit to get the action correct

    I think you will find it is none more black (not white)

    Isn't it great!? I just screwed it together and clear coated it. The art work is by Jason Ridgeway, I have done a few guitars for him. He is Kempsey based and often paints surfboards. He's an awesome...

    Hey, you haven’t seen the more ‘exuberant’ one I built a few years ago 😂

    More ideas, all awesome, my head will explode 😁
    About the ‘look at me’ bit, what did DLR say: “if all the world’s a stage, I just want better lighting”

    Wow thanks all for the input! There’s loads to think about here.
    The body has a rout for the Tele control plate and pickup. If I go a shorter control plate I’ll need to fill the body so a...

    If I decided to relic the hardware like I did on the Tele with the built in amp, cutting the finish wouldn’t matter. I do like this earthy look, almost a zinc plate finish with the copper peeking...

    Agreed, although I have done this with heat shields and so on, if the metal is thin and you cut with a fine fast blade, protect the chrome and polish the end the residual effect of the adjacent...

    Agreed. I’m tempted to cut my original down to remove the switch position and shorten the plate, if I was going to remove the switch. The holes I filled in on the Frankenbass worked out really well. ...

    Thank you! Now I'm excited, I can imagine that woody sound with a little drive - awesome! it sounds fantastic. What a great video too.

    Ok, so do you think it’s worthwhile? I’m at a loss to the sound of the single coil, so options are good, but I try to keep my live bass simple as I’m a clumsy clown. Anyone done this with a bass, or...

    Awesome! Let me know how that goes. Back at work not online so the TLB project has stalled. Also the bits arrived for my ‘73 HD 2 stroke so I need to finish that after 12 years…
