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.

    i want to buy the woods
    i think about these woods:

    Body - Swamp ash
    Neck - wenge/bubinga/rosewood
    fingerboard - Ebony/wenge/rosewood

    which wood you suggest my for the fingerboard&neck?
    what will be the best combination with swamp ash? (fingerboard and neck)
    it will be nice to hear ideas from you!

    Warmoth sells all the stuff for do-it-yourself guitar and bass projects. They have an incredible wealth of info comparing woods, finishes, etc. and describing the differences in sound.
