awesome thread thanks for sharing !! looks perfect imo cant tell at all
After the wax treatment - you can tell
Very interesting how the wood changes colour depending on the angle you look at it
Just need the cables for one of the pickups - then it's sound check time.
It's always amazing how much the contrast changes with the wax. Just natural, it seemed perfect. Make no mistake, it's still a great repair. Nearly impossible to get that size of repair perfect under any circumstance, let alone a wood so unique as this. Great job!!
I'm still happy with it.
Installed the Pickups yesterday (thanks Sascha) - Bartollinis rule!
The neck pickup sounds awesome - a lot more bass and way smoother than the other thumb. But not that agressive.
The bridge pickup is a little faint - may have to do with the pickup screws for the bridge pickup beeing to short so the pickup is to far from the strings.
I blackened the metal bushings - looks good.
So it sounds not so much like a "normal" (newer) Thumb 5 string but sounds great nonetheless. I like it a lot. The neck is just perfect.
More pictures to follow.
Barts rulez. Sascha, too.
