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.

is there a place to buy bookmatched tops?

    Gonna start building another bass soon, and I'm looking for some places that sell bookmatched facings, any ideas?

    I've gotten a few of my tops off of eBay. I will either search for the particular woods or 'Luthier Set' and some good results are returned.
