#1010 The ThunderLobe


#1010 is a Lobe model, curly maple top, mahogany back with a walnut, maple and purple heart neck and a persimmon fretboard.

The main part of this refinish was sanding and tuning the shape of the bass.  Focus was put on the lower horn, the neck/body join and the overall contour around the body.  The persimmon fretboard was sanded, leveled and finished with fretboard oil.  As with all my refins a new control harness was installed with Varitone and a new wood control cavity cover was fabricated, replacing the original aluminum one.

Finishing touches included FretFx LEDs and Schaller strap locks.  Though I say it myself #1010 turned into quite a blonde bomshell!
