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.

    Hey guys, heres the project I have in mind. I want a flying V bass, but the only ones I've seen are Epi's, so I want to build my own that will be basically a Fender Jazz Bass in every sense but the appearance. Since Warmoth will probably want $350 at least to cut one, I'd rather cut it myself. My question is, how do I do this using the available 14" x 20" (approx.) body blanks? Thanks!

    Rampart guitars in Canadia make/sell V bodies and iirc they're a lot cheaper than 350 unless you want something really exotic.
