Gorgeous Acoustic Bass
Saw this at Loveland Luthier. It was made by a local and is only on display at the store. Just thought others might appreciate seeing it.
Looks tough to play.
Hah! Love it!! :-)
I still like the gas tank one on youtube - sounds awesome!!
it is so.... round
Craftsmanship aside... looks like a big wooden banjo.
Can't see it being comfortable to play, especially sitting; and to my eye, the F holes just don't work.
I still have the one I abandoned to build about 25 years ago somewhere.
I fashioned an add-on piece for the neck though, wavy horns and all, since the round shape didn't appeal to me as much when turned and dry fitted with a neck as it did on the sketch.
On a hindsight, I should've just used the bowl to make an actual bass banjo, but I had already cut sound-holes when that idea materialized.
Thanks for sharing though, always nice to see different approaches.
