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 all,

    after years of debating what to do with a japanese short scale bass, i finally decided on everything from pickups to body wood. I have this cool design i want to do on a blue burst finish.

    one problem: i have no idea how to go about doing a burst finish... i want it to burst from a light blue interior to a dark blue almost but 2 shades before getting black on the edges.

    Procedures, tips, techniques.

    Thanks in advance.
