1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

Now that Michael Dolan is retired...

    aw no! where's the announcement? dangit, i had an idea for a build i was going to throw by him to see if it was feasible.

    oh well. next to michael, i wouldn't trust anyone else but dan ransom. his facilities are inside 'real guitars' in san francisco. he just completed a build for me and did a superb job. couldn't ask for better workmanship.

    the only other luthiers i know in your area are arc studios in winters but i've yet to use them.

    good luck.

    Damn! I have a trainwreck of a Gibson Les Paul bass that I was going to, one day, have Michael re-engineer for me. Jim! Did you keep that 750?
