Jesse worked hard on the Bass from morning to night, with some long interruptions to build fencing around the chicken run. We started off the morning by soldering the knobs and and the pickups.
It took filing a rough spot on the bridge and flux to get the ground wire soldered to the bridge. Then we used a chisel to carve a spot for the solder bump.
Before I knew it, Jesse had punded in the peg post collars and had put the neck on the body.
He was really excited to get his first string on a peg!
After dinner, Jesse had screwed most of the pickups on. He unfortunately broke a drill bit of in the body when sinking pilot holes for the low pickup. We had to drill some surrounding area out and use needle nose to back out the bit. And when we did, Jesse got right on to adjusting his bridge.
We finished off the evening listening to Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Primus.
Given the Whatcom County health recommendations to avoid groups of 10 or more, and the general minimization of activities at Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship, our D&D group meetings are suspended. I would encourage participants to move games online. There are already several members on Discord (a chat app) and it will be possible to play games remotely.
Please reach out for any connection details if you would like them.
