Re: Dano-style bass for kids

Well, in favour of the strat, they are easy to fix, and easier to cannibalise together. And that presents teachable moments. I spend a fair bit of of my break and lunchtimes teaching other guitar nerds how to take apart and fix strats. Yes, and they have a cool factor among some teens. I prefer tel...

It looks so fancy I need sunglasses, and also getting an urge to pour a glass of red and just watch it.

Re: Dano-style bass for kids

Love the idea of a rubber foot. I think about this a lot, as I teach guitar to 400 different children across a two week timetable. Things get trashed (except for Roland Cubes, which I'm yet to encounter a dead one of). I try to think of ways that I would cut out non-essential features to make thing...

Re: Dano-style bass for kids

Heres the feet and the controls. Tone is very tight so they dont do stuff with it. I plan on playing country tic tac with this so might need the tone. It sounds very much like a dano baritone, which it kinda is.

Re: Dano-style bass for kids

It is almost as short as the 1448 which is itself tiny, and a guitar. And smaller.

Re: Dano-style bass for kids

Textile tape cost one euro. Will be enough for 30 basses. Painted a friends tele black years ago, leftovers were spent here. Neck is finished with shellac that was left from a chair renovation I did.

Re: Dano-style bass for kids

Had a dano bridge, and thought I would need two, so built another one. The are almost a hundred dollars now, wont pay that. But as often happens, a cheap Fender-clone was better so this was all in vain.

As a Fender fanboy, had to make a neck stamp.

Cut the wood for two. Assumed most things would go wrong with the first one so good to have a spare.

Dano-style bass for kids

I teach bass among a multitude of jobs. I have a Gretsch junior jet bass for kids, but it is too heavy for most children under twelve. Kids love Hofners, but they are a wee bit fragile, and did not trust my club bass with them many times. Danelectros are hard to come by, reissues are solid body (=he...

Beautiful Mustangs. Is the worn one matching headstock gold or what? Really cool. Thanks- it’s a heavily worn in competition orange that supposedly spent the first 40 years of its life in the good behavior room of a prison. There’s still remnants of the red comp stripe on the side by the strap butt...

Also, my -64MM is 22,5” A and -71MM 24” B.

The -64 is thin at the nut but quickly baseballbats itself by the seventh fret. A cool, albeit strange neck.

A colleague gave me thirty apples one day and I carried them home in an empty amp case as I could not find a sturdy enough bag.

Re: Squier VM Jaguar top load bridge any good?

Thanks! The two screws in the picture you posted need threaded metal inserts in the wood to screw into, similar to a TOM tailpiece. The third screw, not pictured, which anchors the back of the bridge, screws directly into the wood. So it is sort-of gibsony danelectro technology! Amazing how Fender c...

Re: pictures of your shortscales

…and more. It’s yellowed a lot since the paint job a few years ago. Has not been outdoors during winter, that would cause a spider-web lacquer disaster.
