... a relic'd jazz bass. I thought it was a good idea at the time, but now this morning I'm not so sure. :confused-smiley-010

I was going to post this in the Vintage forum, but thought I may get crucified.

not yet. I'm not sure if I'm finished or not. I'll take it out of the case tonight with a clear head and determine for sure.

A guy on another forum did a really nice job to his SX P bass - I'll look at his photos again closer.

Well I didn't go stupid on it. Just a little fake mojo. I'll see if anything else needs to be added to make it look "real".

put it this way - if you did half of what I did to one of your basses, I'd come up there and kick you in the nuts!
I hear you, bro. I'm still kicking myself for sanding the finish off my '62 Pbass, and that was forty years ago.

ouch!



My bass does look kinda cool relic'd, though I think I shoulda left it alone. Oh well, it will never be worth anything to anyone other than myself.

better to screw up a cheap bass than an expensive one.

Oh yeah. I've never done mod work to any bass in the past. I owned a bunch of higher end product and treated everything with kid gloves. I would do very minor adjustments at the most - too afraid to screw something up. It's kinf of nice to not give a shit.

And who's to say it's screwed up. One man's stone is another man's jewel. Relic'd guitars seem to be pretty popular these days.
