    Tort will be the first port of call. Building it up tomorrow (Sunday) 48hrs final drying time (nitrocellulose drys and hardens quickly. The chemical evaporation never really stops)
    New black guard is sidelined but kept in reserves just in case

    Been a long day but it’s finally finished, strung up and ready to go.
    I voted Tort myself but completely forgot about the control plate, the tort clashed with the black so black guard it is.
    I’ll put some better pictures up soon. It’s gone dark on me and it’s tea time
    Plus I’m out of attachment space so...
    anyways I’m very happy with the finished results so all good !

    Great job! Will look forward to seeing some actual play wear on a nitro bass. Don’t see too many of those.

    That’s the plan. Just let it age naturally. I did a 7azz of mine earlier this year in nitro, Seafoam Green, spent too long making them look good so doing my best to keep them that way. Taking StingRay out with me for gigs this week.
    I will definitely do some more photos but from a photo point of view it doesn’t look that much different than it did before, same colour etc, need to see it in the flesh.
    It smells lovely though when you open the case !

    It had to be black, matches the control panel. The tort didn’t sit too well with it

    I just noticed the Nordstrand Bigman. Is the preamp stock? Is the toggle a 3-way for parallel/split/series or some other 3-way or 2-way switching? What differences do you notice between the stock pickup & the Nordy?
    Hahahah..I am full of questions.
