Saxophone Player

Saxophone Player
This was my little brother around the late 1980s when he played the saxophone in the school band for one year. His toy stuffed toucan is sitting next to him on the couch.

Grain Is Good

Grain Is Good
Finished stripping the paint of my project bass guitar yesterday and the grain of the wood really shows. I did some further sanding on it after this photo and the stripes don't show so much. I think whoever owned it before me just put two strips of tape…

I started stripping the old paint off my Fender Jazz bass copy project today. Here's what it looked like after I had finished with the front. Tomorrow, the back and then I'll clean it up and remove the last little traces of paint that show here and ther…

Bass Guitar Pickups

Bass Guitar Pickups
I found some new Fender bass guitar pickups online and they came in the mail today and yesterday. The bottom two are for a Fender Precision bass and the top for a Fender Jazz bass. I'm customizing my project and making it sort of a cross between the sou…

New Bass Guitar Tuners

New Bass Guitar Tuners
I found some new Fender tuners for my Jazz bass copy project and installed them. Here they are on the headstock, with the original mounting screws and the old finish still showing. But, they are shiny and new and really look nice!

I have ordered some b…

I posted another shot from this sequence last week, but here's a closeup of me and two friends just goofing off with guitars for the camera. I took this shot with my Minolta XD11 on May 20th, 1989.

Univox Coily Bass Guitar

Univox Coily Bass Guitar
This is my Univox Coily bass guitar, a copy of an Epiphone Casino. The Beatles played Epiphone Casino guitars, so their popularity was why these copys were made. I found mine in a music store and it came just like this, body only and no parts. But, I p…

Fender Jazz Bass Guitar Copy

Fender Jazz Bass Guitar Copy
I posted a shot of this bass guitar the other day and that was how it looked when I first got it. This is what that Fender Jazz clone bass guitar looks like now. I want to strip it down to bare wood and see what it looks like and then refinish it again.…

First Act ME105 Bass Guitar

First Act ME105 Bass Guitar
I picked up this used First Act bass guitar yesterday at the music store when I went in to buy some bass strings. It's suprisingly well-made and solid, considering I only paid $30 for it.

When I got it, it had stickers all over it, which I carefully rem…

Fender Jazz Bass Guitar Copy

Fender Jazz Bass Guitar Copy
This is an extreme crop of a negative showing an old Fender Jazz bass copy I acquired in the early 1990's. It was refinished at some point and looked like this when I got it. It has since been refinished again when I painted it black. I have now decide…
