Lightbulb Glazed the fretboard of my fretless with epoxide resin (video)

Well, it didn't turn out all shiny, but otherwise it's really nice.
Or at least I didn't ruin the bass or anything

No crazy shredding in the video (I still need to practice), but some nice timelapses of the whole process etc.

Well done! Georg! Not sure if it's appropriate for a freak to play bass without playing 1 12 123 etc, but you are excused for now.

Looks and sounds good.

Interesting. you took the numbers for mixing the epoxy by weight.
and then you mixed them by volume?
