  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 :)

    I build guitars and sell them. Strings, too
    Has anyone ever finished a bass with only wax? My piece is Goncalo Alves and Padouk, and its looking pretty good with out applying any finish so far. So, would just applying wax without any type of oil be a bad idea?

    Acording to Warmoth, both of those woods are naturally "waxy" and don't require any finish at all.
