New Mahogany Heel

Sometime in the past, this bass had the neck re-glued at the wrong angle. WIth epoxy. So the whole damn thing came apart like a fart.

The glue they used on this bass in the 70's wasn't the best, and here's the result.

New mahogany block, being carved for a new heel.

More carving.

Even more carving.

Still more carving.

Perfect fit!

Clamped up, lined up and glued.

More to come once finishing starts. Adios.
