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.

    Use the distance from the nut to the 12th fret as a guide. It will be 17" if the bass is 34" scale. Now scale your picture accordingly.
