Progress on the Epi

Lonnie is making good progress on the neck. After 3’ of snow, working on this bass and long days at his real job…we are ready for some spring weather and festivals.

The filler to cover the biscuits under the pegbox

This has been all cut free hand at 7,000 RPM. There is no room for error!

Bottom up repairs

The repairs are a bit unconventional but if they prove to be strong and make this bass playable with the original neck still in tact it will be worth the hours and hours of work.

The bass is coming together and Lonnie hopes to be fitting the neck to the body in the next few weeks. The new ULSA end pin has been fit, the edges have been repaired, and color matched. The over all cosmetic condition of the bass is looking good. We hope to have this bass thumping by the time the spring flowers emerge. Stay tuned…Lonnie’s working hard!
