Referring to my older post Bass Project: Phase 1 Complete, here's the update:
I got the bass refinished in Surf Green, a cool classic 60's color that Fender used back in the day.
I can't say I'm 100% happy with it; but considering we are in Kuwait and what we have to work with, it won't get any better than this. It went back THREE times to be fixed as either it wasn't finished correctly, the paint was chipping or the surface wasn't smooth.
Next step is to put the electronics and hardware in... this part should not take too long!
