  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 :)

    I have gotten parts from them and they seem to be a good deal. I got their indie bridges and Gotoh clone tumers. The finishes on them are not perfect but you really have to look. The bridges are not as easilly adjustable as others, but it is not hard. The tuners are great they stay in tune, in some cases I have gone several days without having to tune.

    Oh and Warmoth is a good source as well.
