    Hmmmm, that is kind of interesting. I wonder how it sounds.

    I think it COULD be cool if it only had the bass neck on there. Id like to see how its sounds if that were the case.
     
  14. it looks like a cheap, easy way to build an acoustic for banging around...

    i don't know, it's pretty damn goofy lookin.

    If I remember it right, it looked like a banjo, but it wasn't actually a banjo.

    Others have done this, with equally mixed results:

    Scary.

    Well, gotta go practice autoharp/contrabassoon now.
     
  18. Actually, this thing was an electric bass shaped like a banjo. It had a flamed maple top (not a drumhead) and magnetic pickups.
