Stuart that sounded great , my bass is the same color but a Fender Jazz , I changed the white pickguard to pearloid it looks good. I can’t play that fast , maybe some day.
I have a question about my string post. Mine are tapered not flat like yours , when applying new strings I try to lay the strings flat against the round washer but beings though my string post are tapered the string slips upward to the middle of the string post on all strings , I can make 3 winds with the A , D and G string but if I make more than 2 winds on the E string it will overlap itself.
Is 2 wind’s enough , it seems I’m always needing to retune the E string every day , the A string every other day. Maybe I need flat string post but this bass is a 2014.
How long does it take before you’re no longer considered a rookie like me with 4 years experience.
Thanks for the video ‘
