  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 would like to hear about making pickup covers

    I am considering doing it on 1 of the bassses I am building.T
  2. Here's some pics of some I did last year...

    The cover was made extra deep then I trimmed the bottom off to glue in the bottom of the cavity. This gave me a perfect alignment for capturing the nuts over the screw holes and it allowed enough height to be adjusted into the pup itself.

    Cool. Thanks for the pix Hambone, very helpful. I want to make some wood covers for the custom I'm slowly getting done, and the luthier said I could try some myself before he did, to practice my fledgling woodworking skills.

    BTW, whats the bridge in the pix you linked?
