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.

    For those who have built and/or played basses with extended fingerboards: what is the maximum number of frets you have been able to have and still be able to slap with decent tone?

    Thanks for any replies.
