I notice they just wrapped over the extra holes without filling them. Is that something you talked about with them when planning the project? Any downside to doing it this way? I am at this point in a similar conversion, and was going to giant plushie spend the weekend frigging around with dowel plugs to fill the floor tom bracket holes here, but now you have me thinking of maybe not bothering.
It would just be extra parts and labor. No sonic or visual reason to do it.
At least thats what Precision and I decided.

The thing I love is how solid and sturdy gluing that wood rim in the middle makes it. Plus it gives extra reinforcement for the railmount.

I have this WFL mahogany 17 tenor that I have converted to a bass. Its nearly done, just have to decide what color of inlay wrap to use, Since it is a silver that has turned to even ginger/champagne color, I need a complementary color, What do you like, the darker Grey glitter, or the lighter Pewter glitter?
Also, should I stain the hoops an ebony or clear stain the maple
The picture does not capture the color as well as I hoped, it is more champagne with amazing gold sparkles that just flash.
