    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.
