  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 was headed over to the Eastern Shore today and figured I'd check in with Brian after all of the great things I'd heard about his work. Went to his website and found that he passed away the 14th of December. I had never had the chance to meet him. RIP.

    That's a shame. I met him in philly a few weeks ago. Nice instruments.

    I just found out about this. I played a guy's BBO bass and liked it. It was the lightest bass I have ever touched. I balanced it on the upper horn jack and held it by one finger. Great bass. Great legacy.
