1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

    If you plug your electric instruments directly into a 110 volt outlet, you're doing it wrong.

    Here's mine. Paid for the whole thing with pocket change. Built with Chinese wholesale hardware and P pup. Frets are made out of nail gun nails glued in the (somewhat) correct fret spots. It's more of a conversation piece then anything. I have played it live though.

    Various guages of weed trimmer line. The weed trimmer line, piezo pickups and fretless-ness give it a thumpy, upright bass sound.
