  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 :)

    I was hoping this is the correct area to ask for assistance. I'm currently putting together a 5 string jazz bass. Body made of Swamp ash, Maple neck with Rosewood fretboard with M.O.P. Block inlays. I've been reading quite a few sites that say that you should go with Tung Oil, or you should go with a Natural Wood Dye, or that you can use amber color nitrocellulose Aerosol to get a nice color. Just looking to have that clear/amber color that looks so good on 75 Jazz basses. What works best on ash and Maple and what is going to get me the result that looks something like this

    I'm hoping all of you can share with me your wisdom and experience.
    Thx,
