une question pour ceux qui ont retaillé la tête façon P51, vous avez utilisé un gabarit? si oui, on peut en trouver ou? 

puis quelqu'un saurait ou trouver un décalco "7ucker" style P51?

I just use the Mike Dirnt. Page 5 of this PDF. Uploaded to my Google Drive.

Make certain you print at 100% scale. I have cut MDF templates with pegs for the tuners and sometimes on vinyl floor tile.

Here is a link to the thread on Basschat I made about the headstock re-shape. Sorry it's written in English but the pictures should help explain. There are pictures of both the MDF and vinyl. If you would like any points clarified I am happy to help.

This has taken much longer than expected. 2 attempts at Paisely print went wrong,then the paint had a reaction. The answer was sand to wood each time.  

 

In the end I will be surrendered and applied to "skin" from https://axedecals.com/shop/ , another will be ordered for the back then I will varnish. Only new parts were 2 saddle bridge, string bushings and Bloodstone P-bass 51 pickups.

Excuse the poor photographer, the light here is bad.

 

All the sanding and the change of bridge resulting in the saddle bridge being lower than original. Neck pocket cut deeper to compensate. Action on E & G 1.5mm at 17th freight, A & D 1.75mm  :) Intonation is very good, 2 saddle bridge is never 100%.

I've never experienced that with any of the 5 I have owned, was it left in sunlight ?

 

Peavey basses with 1 ply pickguards are known to distort,perhaps it is the nature of 1 ply.

J'ai reçu la mienne en red semaine dernière.

Pas grand chose à redire pour le prix. Dans l'absolu, la finition est globalement correct (globalement = exception de la cavité micro avec des ratés de peinture et un centrage approximatif).
Le plus important pour moi : le manche est bien fini, pas de frets découpeuses de bouts de doigts.

Le son est très sympa, typé PB. Le slap passe bien dans le genre.
Les potards sont progressifs sur mon modèle.

J'ai commandé les caches chevalet et micro + repose pouce fender pour PB 51 (presque la moitié du prix de la basse ces petits merdouilles chromés).
Je ferai une photo une fois équipée.

J'aimerais aussi refaire la découpe de la tête style 51 et un petit vernis mais... pas outillé et surtout pas doué ^^.
