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 :)

    Hey everyone,
    longtime lurker/browser, infrequent poster...

    I will be attending a three month g**tar building/repair course starting next week(actually, I'm leaving this Saturday AM). :eek: Does anyone have any suggestions for "areas" of the craft to pay extra attention to? By "area" I mean...What do you wish you would have had "pro" help with when first starting, or anything you wanted to have a better foundation in... I hope this makes sense. Maybe something like..."installing binding is a pain for me, wish I'd had paid more attention to it early on..." or "I see tons of cracked acoustic tops , that is quite common...I'd focus on top repairs", etc.
    The course covers all the facets but I thought with the combined knowledge of the TBer's, I wouldn't "miss" anything that I would smack myself for later. Sorry for the rambling. Thanks in advance for any thoughts, etc.
    I'll keep checking back for a few days...wish me luck
