  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 :)

please recommend book for bass building

    i am looking for a book to give me some guidelines for building a bass. I am a decent woodworker,but i've never built an instrument and would like to have something to reference when needed.

    I second Martin Koch!
    To me, that was more informative and more insptrational than Hiscock's.
    Another, simpler but also good, book is the one by Roger Siminoff.

    Another vote for Hiscock (dang, that sounds weird...Probably shouldn't say that out loud...). I found it very helpful.
