You are probably going to ask, "Where the heck do I get a decent bass guitar for a defret project? You know... if you already have a bass sitting in your closet with worn out frets then you're good to go! If not, you can search on or You can also find a used bass guitar in a pawn shop, or in the classified section of your local newspaper. I picked up a B-Stock jazz bass guitar from Rondo Music. The SX bass guitar was listed as "B-Stock" with two problems:
  1. There was some peeling on the pearloid pickguard.
  2. The body had some minor scuffs.

There was no way to repair the pickguard due to the nature of the peeling, so had to be replaced.

I couldn't detect any minor scuffing, even with extremely close-up inspection the entire bass guitar body.

Plus, Kurt Zentmaier is instrumental [lol] in conducting business with integrity and honor.

The Ash body I received is a solid 3-piece natural matte finish. I love the resonance of this body! Can't wait until I have the project finished:
