  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 :)

    About the best source of information I've found is right here on this forum. If you read up on the past posts and do searches when you have a problem almost any question can be answered. Of course, if you can't find a solution, you can always ask. These cats really seem to know what they're doing.

    Another decent resource is www.projectguitar.com. They have plenty of tutorials about guitar building that can generally be applied to basses as well.
