1 RustyG 3 weeks ago 1. My mate wants to repair his old Japanese EB3 copy, so he asked if I would have a go. I thought why not ??!! It looks pretty beat up, but salvageable. I’ve already sourced some tuners and a Gibson style bridge, plus I need to scratch build a scratch plate. 2. My old Beatle bass is currently fretless, (and unplayable), after a mate thought he’d try to fix it after a bottle or five of red wine. Not happy. A few people have looked at it to refret it but with what I’ve been quoted, I could buy a Hofner Ignition !! It holds some sentimental value to me, so I’ll try it myself. If I stuff it up it’s no big loss to me, I’ll just hang it on the wall as a clock or something. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Wish me luck !!
