  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 :)

    there are many on-line wood suppliers, a quick search for guitar woods, hard woods, exotic woods...will yield a few.

    not familiar with that bass.

    again, a google may reveal quite a bit.

    i have done MANY bass/guitar plans using various methods:

    1. pen and paper
    2. templates
    3. 2D CAD (illustrator/autocad)
    4. 3D CAD (pro/engineer/3D Studio MAX)

    but, since some are for clients, and some have taken long hours to create, i'm not one to give them away.

    i'd recommend creating your own plans. immense learning experience.

    just my thoughts.
