  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 :)

Sad to see it go...

  1. I'm building my second instrument right now, and I'm close to being finished. The first was for me (it was a hack job, but I love it). Anywink, maybe this is a stupid question, maybe it's been asked before, but...

    Do all luthiers feel like they've lost a little something of themselves when they sell an instrument that they've made?

    I sure do with almost all the ones I have sold. Getting good e-mails from the happy customers helps a lot though. Knowing they like them and will play them is what it is all about.........T

    I guess so, but I feel good knowing I created something that someone, somewhere is enjoying, and that it will hopefully survive long after my time and inspire future builders.

    ...I think it would be soooo cool if one of my instruments went through a "Red Violin" sorta thing. :p
