  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.

    I have a narrow 6 bridge 3" from center to center. So I was going to build a "baritone" style bass. Any of you built one? Will 30" scale work? What gauge string should I get? I would like flats. I am glueing up the body now. Any advice or tips would be great......Tom
