: Why am I not surprised that your bowtie is crooked?
May I suggest the BT-Aligner Jr Lite Deluxe Plus? Aligns bow-ties to
within 0.0018". (Uses top two shirt buttons for vertical reference.)
LOL. Naaah ... I played upright for years, so the fretless (MusicMan) is no
problem. Actually which one I play at any given time depends upon the tune,
and whether the twin fiddles and steel are on that day (don't need that many
players without frets on a bad day, or when the monitors suck).
I'll admit to being partial to the 61 Fender Jazz (as any right minded bass
player would be), but if I have to fly, I go with the fretless ... I can
replace it at a reasonable price, but not the Jazz.
I've put a few together out of parts, but for some strange reason I've never
had any desire whatsoever to build an instrument of any kind.
And with guys like you around, I would be wasting my time in any event ...
might fine looking instruments!
Youngest son plays upright bass. In that regard I've had to become a
bit of a lutier. Boy he's rough on that thing. I've had to put it
back together a number of times. Wish he had taken up the fiddle. :~)
