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, I play a '03 American Standard Jazz bass and I want to throw on a hipshot detuner on there, but my question is this: would it leave permanent "scars" if I wanted to switch it back? I sort of wanted to keep this bass stock and just tinker with my fretless MIM, but this is the bass that switches tunings the most (50% of the songs I play are in D). I'm not looking to sell it, there's no real reason to leave it stock. Anyway, were I to switch it back, would the holes from the hipshot be hidden by the original tuner?
