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.

when building a bass do you need a "humidity controlled" environment?

  1. I know that you do when making acoustics...but I didn't know how it would effect the production of a bass...my good friend's dad is a starting luthier who can make some impressive acoustics...well I want him to make me a bass and he said that he'd only charge me for parts (sweet) but he said that he only has a dehumidifier right now and that he couldn't build any acoustics until he got a humidity controlled room....but i figured that if it wouldn't really have an effect on the tone/playability of a bass in contrast to an acoustic guitar, I could probly convince him to go ahead and start on my bass...thanks a lot
  2. :smug: Also, How does humidity play into laminates and the glueing of hippie sandwiches? Thanks
