    Hand Planes

    Best Place to get quality planes, go? I busted out my plane that I bought in high school and never (didn't know how) used it. Well my project (see Walnut Strat) guitar was sitting there with a rounded neck heel and now it's flat. Since then I've been watching a ton of youtube woodworking videos (with only a couple luthier ones mixed in) and I want to do a little more manual work. In addition, how come there aren't any radius planes? Well, there are, but not for 7.25-16" radii?

    Sounds and plays better than I would've expected of my own handiwork! The pickups seem a little quiet and I seem to bump the volume knob a little when palm muting. I haven't played out of a powerful amp, but I haven't noticed any hum. Very happy, unlike the bass (fretless*) I made, I can see myself playing this one a lot. *key factor here

    So back to the 320 or just more 400 with oil?

    Wow, this has been sitting on my dryer for a LONG time; actually made some sizable progress this past weekend. I've been actually playing a ton of guitar and bass this past year and a half and haven't been interested in spending the time otherwise. Well, be off for some days this season, my fingers hurt and I watched some videos from Wyn Guitars and got inspired to do some sanding!

    Multiscale P Bass

    I was just making a joke...
  9. If I'm making a multiscale/fanned fret Precision Bass, does that mean I should use a Jazz Bass pickup?

    Bought an oscillating spindle sander, really cleaned up some of the curves and inspired some further sanding!

    That is why I contend that everyone needs a hobby and watching TV/playing videogames doesn't cut it.

    Exactly, this is the finish I'll be going for https://goo.gl/images/7FKWVx

    Some more carving, shaving, filing, sanding...and of course, some more fit testing. Holy HEAVY next to my previous build! Holding my alder bass in my left hand and my walnut guitar in my right, wow.

    So I bought a drill press partially to drill my tremolo holes...had to use my drill guide attachment I employed some child labor on my last build, so made sure I got some on this build as well. Used BOTH children for that tummy cut! Getting there!!!
