  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 :)

    Hello folks, seems like a simple thing, but in fact, i'm having hard times finding detailed info about how to carve the back of the neck, i have some ideas, but i'd like to see some detailed info about it, there's several aspects which i'm unsure of how its done like technique to maintain uniform and even surface all across the neck, aspects to be aware about the stiffing rods, and lots of things!


    Any info will be very appreciated

    Carving by facets is a cool way to do it:
