The BUILD is BUILT !!!  (See "build gallery" for raw & sprayed body pics)
P body - Chambered ash/ash top, 59 burst w/ mint PG.
P neck - (1-3/4" nut) Madagascar rosewood bd on no-tint maple.
I am more DELIGHTED than is possible to express! I've been waiting many years to have this exquisite bass built. I'll post my "review" in due course. Thank you so very much Roger (see my happy new year post) & a big thanks to Kevin Drexler for a process only he could handle I'm sure.
Y'all gotta try this!  Cool
Blair.

Roger, I have always cleaned my flats with rubbing alcohol quite often by pinching the string with the wet spot on a cloth around the string a running the length a few times. On the Fender I even cleaned the back of the neck with that alcohol cloth. Since alcohol is a drying agent I will avoid the rosewood on my Sad' build & wondered if I would be wise to avoid the lacquer finish on the neck as well. What say you?
I recall Rob LoPrinzi suggesting foam windex for cleaning fretboards. Is that what I should be using on the whole of the neck wood? I am religious about keeping the entire neck clean. Thanks a lot.
Blair.
PS: It terrifies me to have to "hydrate" the rosewood & risk turning it "black". Thank you for that exquisite pc of Madagascar.

Killer looking bass!  How does it play?  How does it sound!  You went with a P-bass style neck instead of J Bass neck?  Enjoy!

The P bass neck that Roger builds is like the neck of a beautiful woman that extends from her head to where her back loses its name.  Grin

Hi Blair,

Firstly...Congrats on the bass! Glad to hear your loving it. It was pleasure to build (but then again which ones aren't).

-Alcohol on the Flats are fine to clean with.
-As for the neck, I would only use Bestine or our everyday polish to lightly wipe it down. It is Nitro so if you rub too hard it will buff to a gloss over time.
-On the Madagascar board I would use the planet Waves Hyrdate that we sell. Stuff is amazing, oils the board and cleans too! Don't over use it...just a few times a year. Trust me..I'm as anal as the next { Well, maybe a bit too much} concerning condition of my basses ( and others).

Other than that.....Just play the bass!
