  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 :)

    Awhile ago i posted some design pictures of a bass i wanted to build.
    When in the past few weeks i've finally started building, and figured i would post some progress pictures.
    I only have time to work on it on day a week so progess is slow going, but none the less progress.

    near detroit...uh
    I dont want to offend in any way but do you think the neck will dive?
    I guess the question is where will the strap button be?
    if its not near 12th fret the neck will undoubtedly dive on you.

    Great job on the neck through!

    No, the nect shouldnt dive once its all done. there is going to be so room on the body behind the bridge that is going to help balence everything out.

    Actually, more wood there is behind the bridge, worse is the balance.
  6. actually that depends upon where the rear strap button is located...too far back, and you are correct, plus it will make the nut feel miles away.
