  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 :)

Fillin the grain

  1. Hey guys. Makin another bass. This time, doing the pre-finish prep myself...

    The body is mahogany. The question:

    I have bondo at my cab shop. Has anyone ever used this as a grain filler? I'm doing an opaque finish, so the green showing thru isn't a concern. In fact, the color I'm having it shot IS green, btw...

    Thoughts? It's free, it's quick hardenning, easily sands, and doesn't shrink.

    prop pro pro pro? Thoughts?

    Birchwood Casey makes a clear pore filler that you can buy at almost any gun shop.
