    As a drummer, I thought I'd give bass a go and have a bit of a new hobby building it, then learning to play. Wanted to go for that 60s p bass look. Vintage amber stain with a satin poly fishing. Neck done in 7 coats of tru oil. Frets with lemon. For my first build, I'm pretty happy with it (and no mistakes!!!)

    FYI. I've just strung my PBH-4 BEAD and man is it taking some getting used to, I need the notes below the normal low E for one song

    Brendan, do we need to have a minimum number of entries? Maybe we should roll this into the April GotM?

    Given we only have two entries, we've decided to roll this month into April - may be a bumper month!

    March and April Guitar of the Month (for Guitars and Basses finished in Feb and March

    Due to only having two entries for the March we've decided to roll over the comp to April. Apologies to the entries at this stage - but we figured that this was the best way forward.
