  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 :)

    Any idea where I can find a Ibanez Soundgear head stock logo ' SDGR' made of Abalone?

    Only thing I can suggest is that if you find a lazer-cutter who can translate your SDGR design source and cut one out of that thin (brittle) abalam (laminated abalone) sheeting or indivuidual abalone pieces. You'll still need to inset it in your headstock, which is no easy feat if you are not versed in inlay. Good luck anyway - I did this years ago using pre-leveled (lighter parts) and rough/shell abalone (on ebony) I got from a rock-shop. It was my second attempt at inlay.
