Bo Diddley Bass?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Jon223, Feb 18, 2004.

  1. You guys know how Bo Diddleys guitars look right? Just a board with routing... well, has anyone ever seen a bass like that?
    Sorta like a stein, but headed.
    I'm thinking thats how i would want to make my bass (with an essex neck.)
    I think it might have some nose dive though.
    Anyway, i figure it would be simple...
    any thoughts?
  2. I know Carvin sells unshaped rectangular body blanks in alder and swamp ash i belive. If you really wanted to go through with this project that would be a good start. also, if one day you decied you dont like the "boat paddle" shape anymore you can practice shaping it.
