Westbury Track 4 Bass refinished

Post by Clive Shakedown on Sun Mar 02, 2014 8:13 am

Hello everyone.

Here is my recently refinished Westbury track 4,

Thanks to everyone on these forums who gave me much needed advice,

needless to say it sounds and feels fantastic, gigged it last night and the DiMarzio pafs really push out the volume,

The gain on the amp was down to a quarter of the setting I use for my Thunders.

Gave me a whole new sound.

Thanks again! here's some pics.

Thanks everyone, The finish is clear red nitro with a mahogany stain on the maple to start with, although the stain didn't go as dark as I thought it would, in the end the colour was just right.

The scratch plate choice was a long one, red with bling? or black and cool? bling won!

A 500k volume with a 250 tone, the other 2 switches are some kind of strange coil tap or phase thing, I copied it from the original(?) wiring, makes the sound a bit thinner.

The only real problem I had was digging out the old
 pick up screws that had broken off and welded themselves into the wood.  Am now on the look out for the next one.

The mini switches are series/parallel configuration.

Thanks Westbone, I did try to figure it out, but the connectors on the back of those mini toggles make my head hurt.
