Yup, just finish to talk to my sister and she gave me the idea to refinish the headless to sell it! But then I thinked and decided to rebuild it.

Then general idea:

1.Remove all the paint.

2.Thin the neck(I founded the neck too large so why not resolve the problem!)

3. Cut the wings.

4. Make new wings.

5. Fill the jazz pickup cavity.

6. Paint the new bass.

And I'll do that before doing my first complete build to have more experience. I'll more likely do a P bass body since i've got a very bad P-bass gas for the moment.

Gotta love my sister!

always nice to have a "beater bass" around for experimenting with.

I just bought this old Kramer plywood bass for 80 bucks and is a real POS in tone, but has a lot of potential to be a one of a kind as well...

No tekken, it's a Guild Brunside Crossbow.

You want one? I can keep mine for you if you want it? But beware, it's in bad condition(wood chipped on the body)

Well, Yesterday I saw another Burnside on Ebay, but a Lance.

http://cgi.ebay.ca/1985-Guild-Burnside-The-Lance-bass-Randy-Rhodes-ish_W0QQitemZ370333834100QQcmdZViewItemQQptZGuitar?hash=item56399ddb74

Very cool IMO.

Sell 2 Charvels and you've got a Guild? Ain't that a good idea?

Great idea, Noob! I also enjoy throwing together things to see what I can create, or in my case, destroy! Laughing

MIKE! DUDE! You are SO right on about that Guild Pilot! Were it not for the headstocks (you know, me and me string angle issues!), I'd probably own one! Every single one I have ever jammed on was like a dream! The feel, the playability, the balance, the look, all of it!

Some of the Guild basses were so nicely made. If I ever got a hollowbody, I'd want it to be a Guild.

I could SELL the Charvies, but not in time to buy that before it ends...that LANCE also has been re-listed and if my income tax direct deposit was sooner, I would buy that Lance for 300+shipping tomorrow .. although nice, the pilot is too much like my Futura body, and I would only buy it as a collectible.



check out the body curvyness similarities... cheers

True, very similar!!! But the guild looks like it have a slimmer body than the Futura, or is it just camera angle?
