335 Semi-hollow Bass: Strings!

The clamps came off the set-neck this afternoon and the strings went on for an acoustic test of the semi-hollow 335 bass. While the action is a little high, I'm really loving how the finish has come out. She looks so awesome - if I do say so myself ;).

Suffice to say, there was more than a little bit of acoustic dum-dum-dumming here in the man-cave once she was all tuned up. I so wish I could play bass! Now it's just the electronics to go. Did I say *just* ? I'm sticking with the original kit-supplied pots for this one (not the larger CTS pots or their ilk) so I'm hoping it won't be as much of a struggle getting the wiring harness into the cavity. First though, I need a wiring harness!!
