  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 :)

My first Bass is done!

    This was more of a warm up to my real first bass that I am going to do next. I got all the parts from ebay and Guitar parts USA. I don't recommend either of them. I got the neck from GP USA and it has a really bad bow in it but I fixed it as much as I could. Anyway, here are some of the specs...

    Maple neck
    Maple fretboard
    Fretless with lines
    Unknown body wood
    Basslines Quarter Pounders
    Generic tuners and bridge
     
  2. Good job!

    A suggestion for the next one would be to alter your tuner location to make the strings a little straighter when they are pulled across the nut.
