#1088 Cherry JD                                                Photos


Here’s a nice Cherry JD.  It arrived at DBP with just one string but the bass is solid and should scrub up nicely.

The bass has Cherry wings, with a Mahogany, maple and purpleheart neck with an ipe board.  As part of the refin’ I’ll be re-shaping the bass a little as well as adding a new pick-up, which will mean a wee trim of the fingerboard too.

Work to be done:

Sand fingerboard to 800 grit and polish

Sand body to 400 grit   

Sand/shape neck to 400 grit

Shield cavities

Fabricate cavity cover

Seal wood

Apply Tru-Oil

Sand-back and polish

Fit string thro’ ferrules

Redo wiring harness add tone control

Fabricate nut and bridge

Refit hardware

Final set up

Work Completed:

Strip bass of hardware

Remove lacquer

Shape/sand body to 80 grit

Re-rout for new pick-up

Shape/sand body to 150 grit

Shape/sand neck to  220 grit

Sand of fretboard 220 grit

Filled holes/gaps as required.
