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.

    On the basses where you have to remove the neck to adjust the truss rod, would it be possible to drill a channel and cut the pickguard so you could adjust it without having to remove the neck every time?

    yep this job is a piece of cake for a good luthier (shouldn't charge too much either - 30seconds with a router).
