  2. Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

    Note that TalkBass will host unlimited attachments for you, all the time, for free ;)  Just hit that "Upload a File" button.  You are also free to use our Media Gallery if you want a place to create albums, organize photos, etc :)

    I've been curious on how to become a luthier, are there special "schools" for people who wants to be luthiers or is it like a father-to-son-heritage-job?
    Are there any luthiers in Sweden?

    How much money does a luthier spend on raw material(Wood, Hardware) for an average handmade bass?
    Do you need any special tools or is it enough with the ol' bandsaw in the garage?

    I would be thrilled if any luthiers out there could answer these questions.

    Thanks.

    Yes.
    There was thread on that a few months ago...may I suggest the search facility?
