    How's the neck dive? :bag:

    Seriously though, that makes my inner-minimalist very happy indeed!

    One is enough...especially if you have a slide too.

    Yeah well, it would be a fun project building it, then you'd play it a couple of times and it would make a great conversation starter, and finally it would end up in a closet or on eBay. Just keeping it real now. ;)

    Let's face it: What he played in the video is what some guys play all night. Less is more.

    That's rather fun looking! Reminds me of when I was a lot younger, myself and a couple of the guys out the band I was in used to get together, drink beer, smoke cheap cigars and play skiffle for the fun of it. This looks like an electric version of the tea-chest bass I made.

    A single string costs almost as much as a set. No advantage there. Otherwise, it's pretty cool!

    A wash tub bass with a piezo is another way to go too!

    You could put an endpin on it and play it like an upright.
