Dropped the body off at my buddy’s house last night. He decided he wanted to take his time routing out the cavities vs. knocking it out while I was there. We did get the control plate drilled out so preamp can get mounted.
The preamp knobs are 6mm, and I need 5 knobs instead of the just 3, so ordered five new via the StewMac sale. Plus the ones that came on the bass were push on for split shaft knobs vs. the now solid knobs.
Not much of a fun update, but small progress. Will clean up and oil the fretboard while I wait. It surprised me how dry the fretboard is and how dirty the frets are for a new bass. I suspect the ‘blemished’ part was that this was a demo bass in a store.
