  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 was wondering if it's possible to re-paint your bass.
    If possible how would you go about it....
    What paint would you use, how many coats, how would you get it to have that kind of finish, how would you get thoses kind of effects (eg, Sunburst)... etc.
    I dont know anything about paint and stuff.... so excuse the ignorance.

  2. The website reranch has heaps of info and products for refininshing your bass...i think stewmac.com also has lots of paints and stuff to buy

    Reranch and stewmac are the places to look. Realize you'll be greatly reducing the resale potential of the instrument.
