  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 done a search for this wood in all the forums. Didn't find anything.

    What's the deal with this mystery wood? What are the sonic properties of it? for a top/back of a bass? similar to other woods?

    Search on "chechen", the more conventional spelling. Dozens of hits.
