  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.

    Is it possible to convert a standard 4 on one side headstock to a MM style 3+1?
    I have an old Peavey Patriot that I was wondering about...

    I would do a sketch, so Trace head stock, do machine head holes, make sure the strings can line up from the nut properly.

    Ack! Don't hurt your Peavey man! Maybe try it out on an extra neck or order a Might Mite one to see how it works or try it on an SX bass as a trial run.
