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.

    I read on a thread somewhere that the difference between the 60's and 70's Fender JBass is the pickup position changed. That is part of the reason the 70's JBasses are popular. Can someone verify that statement say which pickup moved. Also on new Fenders where are the pickup located in relatsion to the 60's and 70's models.
