  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 :)

can anyone gimme a rough estimate?

    if your talkin new pots switches and wire...your lookin at about 5-10 per pot, a few bucks worth of wire, 5-20 for the switch, and a hour or so of labor..which really varies per shop between like 25 - 100 an hour.

    If you do it yourself you'll be looking at $3-5 per a pot, a couple bucks of wire $5-10 per a switch and $3-10 for the jack, this is quoting from stewmac.com

    You'll also need to pick up a soldering iron (radioshack $8, get either the 15w or the 25w, I suggest the 15w) and some solder (radioshack $3 "hi-tech" solder).
