  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 :)

  1. Hmmm.

    I don't know about how wise it would be to do this as the owner of your example is trying to sell his. :) On the other hand if you mark the centerline of both the neck pocket and the neck, and continually check the alignment of the two while you remove material from both sides of the pocket, then it would probably work.

    But that 4-string body had better be a pretty good one to merit this amount of work.

    Wow, that bass raises alarms I never before suspected existed.

    I would think that it would be more cost effective to buy a 5 string body.
