It's wide enough. But you're going to need spacers underneath the feet to get enough height.

The Outpost Cafe / RIP Malcolm Young

A month ago George Young passed away. Today the sad news came that Malcolm Young died.
A huge loss for the family. But also for AC/DC fans across the globe...

Rest In Peace Malcolm.
And thank you for all the great riffs and songs.

Maybe you can wrap it with black shrink foil. Perhaps your car painter knows where to get this stuff. It is often used in the automotive industry these days.

I hope it'll work out good for you Alan.

I've had a lesser experience with a car painter doing a refin on a bass guitar.
The result was a decent paint job. But the entire finish had an orange peel wobbly surface.
Apparently car painters don't bother to sand properly nor polish it to a mirror like flat surface...

My advice would be to emphasize on a good sanding and thorough polishing job (which can be extremely time consuming)

I have no problems at all with the rosewood fretboard. And no problems with the DeCola pickups.
But I think the controls lay-out is a mess.

Eugen Wulff of GunCustoms can do it. He used to make the pickguards for the BaCHbirds that I used to sell.
But Eugen is in The Netherlands (in the city of Haarlem).
