Truss Rod Replacement Part 2

Finally finished that truss rod replacement, like so:

Trimming the excess fret position marker material.

Levelling the fret markers.

More levelling.

Cleaning up the epoxy on the fingerboard edge.

Levelled, sanded and treated with oil.

Preparing the new ebony nut.

Nut complete!


This kind of job is a lot messier than it looks. On the days I worked on this bass, I went home dustier than a butlers' duster. A butler that has a lot of dusting to do in a giant mansion that doubles as a sawmill.

Potential band name: Butlers' Duster. Potential low, about 3/10 or so.
