Hi Frank. I am interested, I have no problem doing the final sanding if you can provide me with rough cut pieces. Just let me know the cost and I will get a check in the mail to you. Thank you for answering my post and all of the great information you provide on your site. I just finished an old Washburn parlor restoration using several of your tutorials. All the best to you this Holiday season.
Hi Frank. I just finished another guitar. I am just not happy with the Lacquer that is out there anymore. When I worked for Loprinzi years ago, the lacquer was so much better. Now it comes already to pray and even after all the cure time, if you look at it the wrong way or even a gentle bump produces a "white" mark...Oy Veh!! What are you using if I may ask.
I do like it a lot!! 27 frets on one side, 25 on the other, silky-smooth Ebonol fretboard (Birch + phenolic resin baked in an autoclave), a lightweight and contoured Luthite body, solid Brass bridge, Teflon-impregnated nut, active 3-band Bartolini electronics... all for $450! Great Greg Curbow really put the Cort factory to flex their muscles with this bass.
It's not just its features, it's also solidly built. I use it with the lowest action you can imagine: .047" on the G to .048" on the low B (measured at the 12th fret). ¿Neck bow? Just .0025" on the 5th fret (when pressed in the 1st and 10th frets). I haven't been able to get those numbers with basses of twice its price range! So yes, I like my bass.
