Carie's Shop Work

Carie was over twice this weekend to work in the shop on her bass. I mentioned her in an earlier post and that she was thinning the neck on her Chinese bass. She finished the work on Saturday afternoon, and so I wanted to post a few pictures of her work. She did a great job!

This is a picture of the neck after several hours of thinning. You'll notice it has kind of a square shape to it.

This is Carie after she switched from a scraper to file to round the edges of the neck and do the final shaping.

This is the finished product. After filing and shaping, Carie had to sand with several grades of sandpaper, and then 0000 steel wool.
