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 :)

    Galloup is a great bet. They have a very storied reputation. It was the original shop of Dan Erlwine ... you know, the guy from Stew-Mac. Brian Galloup worked with Erlwine back then and bought him out when Erlwine went to work for Stew-Mac (back in the mid '80s, I think). Brian and his crew are top-notch. Not only do they offer the 6 month course, but they offer an 8 week one, as well. And one of the perks of the course is that they provide housing for free!
