A couple of months back, I had to sell all my bass equipment to help out my family (dad lost his job, mom's hours were cut) and all I have left is an SX P bass with no amp. A friend of mine and I were talking yesterday and began talking about acoutic basses. Since I currently don't have any source of income, I can't afford to buy even the cheapest of ABG's. This where his crazy idea came in. He has an old Washburn acoustic guitar that's pretty much useless to him (he quit playing music years ago). He had the idea to convert it into an acoustic bass. He said he would just use a nut from an old neck I have and possibly take off the guitar bridge and swap it for a bass bridge (somehow, he has one of those laying around). So before he goes and destroys an acoustic guitar, I want to know if it would actually work. I told I would consult the wise members of the Talkbass community before we decide to go forth with this project. I guess desperate times do call for desperate measures. Keep in mind that the guitar is really dinged up, so the idea to sell it is thrown out the window. Thanks in advance, gang.
