    so i just wasted about 15 bucks worth of maple trying to make a ramp for my stock MIM fender jazz.

    anyone out there that can make me one without charging some ******** amount? emailed a guy and he wanted 150 bucks for something that would take someone maybe a hours worth of work with the right equipment.


    sorry to sound abrasive. i'm just really mad that 3 hours worth of my work just decided to say ****it and not work out.

    ...$15 is 6 board feet of Sugar Maple to me. Did you really go through that much for one ramp?

    Rarely do men fail, frequently they quit trying. Sun tzu

    There are many builders here you can contact by pm about this. If you give a few a pm, I am sure you will get a good piece at a reasonable price. $150 for a simple ramp is ridiculous.

    Holy brush strokes Batman!!! I like the design, though. The shiny bosoms may have had something to do with that.
