Sorry about your depression. Templates are looking rad and that blank looks like my wet dream as here I can't get any hard wood(pun also intended), only pines.

I've tried to make my own necks but the whole process of making it for the first time was super disappointing as I messed up a couple of mahogany and maple blanks that had taken some time to be delivered, so I wouldn't rush the process and work on it when you really feel like it.

What's the story behind that beaten up bass neck?

I'm famous for not rushing this Razz

I will eventually finish removing the rosewood and put on a new rosewood board. It's a laminated cap opposed to the slab so it'll take some doing.

Jaco Pastorius

I had defretted it, I asked my brother to smooth out the board a little, he over did it.

I didn’t want to sound like Jaco though, I was going for more of a Jah Wobble thing.

Looking good, Paul; the eventual pay-off will be worth the sticktoitiveness in the face of that dumb ol' black dog x

I see he found the brown note and his lifelong music quest is over. Feel happy for Mark
