Guitar Scratchplate

Guitar Scratchplate

Durban bassist Skeg Jones’ new Fender acoustic bass had it’s old scratchplate removed by the previous owner.
This left a sticky residue and a suntanned patch where the old plate had been. We worked out a shape to cover the patch and a template was made.
Skeg’s brother Steve supplied a length of reclaimed Oregon Pine which was ripped into a 3mm ply, shaped to the template and finished with clear water based sealer.
