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.

    I'm having a new bass built for me by a regular poster here on TB...he does great inlay work, but has not yet done a board with typical Fender-style 70's J Bass blocks. I'd like the blocks on my new bass to resemble that time period as much as possible. Does anyone here know of a good source to send a fingerboard to that has been slotted and prepped? I'd like to have them cut and install pearloid blocks. I'm going to use a macassar ebony board, and also don't have access to the proper block material....any clues?? Please let me knoe ASAP!

    yep JC, Gurian Instruments does really fine inlay work. Mail mail and I'll give you their e-mail cause I think the website is not up and running yet!

    You could ask Adrian Garcia too. His USACG bass neck was sent out to receive this kind of inlays...

    Peace, JP

    I believe that USACG has a $100 upcharge for the block inlay mod. I purchased the parts for my "Fendowsky" from Tommy and ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! They're great guys to work with and produce a fantastic product. If you go with USACG you won't be disappointed.
