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.

    G'day People,
    I currently live and work in Saudi Arabia but will be holidaying soon in New Orleans.
    I am making an electric 5 string bass and have been able to purchase all the wood that I need here in Saudi, except something for the finger board.
    Do any of you know where I could get a piece of ebony big enough for a 34" 5 string bass finger board, whilst I am in New Orleans?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You can order from quite a few online sources and arrange to have them ship to where you are staying.
