  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 :)

Finally some pics of my first bass!

    Very elrick-esque headstock. The body shape is a bit reminiscent.

    Very nice bass overall. Contruction looks great, especially the smoothness of the back scroll.

    That's awesome. It has a very earthy, warm look to it. Be sure to put up some sound clips! Great Job!

  7. Nice one! I'm diggin' the smiley face control layout! That all wenge (I'm assuming) neck with the rear headstock laminate is dead sexy!

    Nicely done! I wish I had the time, skill and room to attempt something like that. I love the back carving
