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.

    Hi everyone,

    I've been thinking about having a custom bass built and am a little in the dark about different finishing materials and the pros/cons. Primarily I'm curious about not using a heavy lacquer finish and going the route of Warwick with an oil or oil/wax finish.

    The basses that got me thinking are www.beebasses.com. They use an oil finish. I tried a couple of their basses and it was different but nice.
