This idea has been in the back of my brain for ages now. Anyway, I was wondering if it is possible to make a bass out of (fired) clay? I am a ceramist; working with clay for me is one of my favorite activities (along with playing bass). So when I see instruments made out of metal, I think to myself, "why not fired clay?" I mention Porcelain, but that type of clay is extremely hard to work with (as supposed to stoneware clay); on the bright side, it's very light. Here's what I thought: - It would be hollow. A solid body might explode in the kiln. - You would have to sit down to play it. This isn't a problem for me, although I thought about putting eye hooks for straps.. - It will be glazed. - It probably will have pickups - It will be passive. I know how I would build it. Building such a bass would be done with slabs, and I have done slab building before. The neck will probably be from All Parts or Warmoth; whatever is cheaper. Anyway, I was just wondering if this project is viable/possible. EDIT: I say it probably will have pickups but at the same time I am toying with the idea to make this into an ABG.
