  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 :)

Is this crazy?

    What does everyone here think of a converson from a traditional unlined fretless neck to a fannet-fret neck? Would it be just way too much trouble? Installing individual string bridges would be easy, but it seems like it would be a nightmare when it comes to dealing with the break angle over the nut. Anybody have any good ideas as to how to accomplish this?

    Seems like a bit much trouble to me. I would imagine if you had the means to properly cut and install fanned frets, it would be just as easy for you to make a new neck from scratch.
