    IB-5 Electric Bass - Third Build

    I purchased this build along with a HB-4S back in December, 2018. Both kits arrived arrived in early Spring, 2019. I previously built an IB-5, so I had some experience already with this kit. I purchased and built this one for the father-in-law. As per my previous build this one turned out very well. With this being my 3rd build, I used the same techniques for finishing. I finished the build in June of this year.

    Thanks. This second one only took me a few months. I only used a 600 grit and 1500 grit sand paper. Finishing was a clear stain and a few coats of varathane. This is one of my favorite basses! I really enjoy the sound!
