The neck is securely reset and the glue has rested (as if it was tired) for a few days. Lonnie’s moving on to the final set up. Right now he is working on scraping the factory original rosewood fingerboard. It has some dips and humps so he is working them out to a nice smooth surface with just the right amount of scoop (relief) in the fingerboard.
The process is all hand, eye and a feel for what is just the right amount of recess in the fingerboard. Once the bass is set up with a new bridge and strings he will check the fingerboard again for buzzing and the easy of playing.
Lonnie and I will work together on the final set up and approval.
That is the fun part…where I get to test drive the bass.
