Crazy Stuff

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by biggs1249, Oct 1, 2008.

  1. Ok. So i'm working on this old P bass. Its been modded like crazy in the past. The cavity for the electronics has been huge-ified, it was routed for a J pickup and an additional neck P pickup.

    So since its no museum piece my plan is just to make it rediculous. I was just wondering if anyone has any ideas for the electronics.

    I bought some EMG select passive pickups (P&J). Just to get it making noise(I plan on getting qtuners once they made a divided one). I was thinking of wiring it with one volume one blend, adding a momentary kill switch... I was tinkering with the idea of circuit bending a cheap pedal, throwing that in there and having a rediculous noise switch. maybe even installing a joystick? anybody have any cool ideas?
  2. nobody has any thoughts??

    Go for it! I like the idea of a noise chip imnplanted into the bass.

    The singer/guitarist from Muse has a guitar with a Kaoss pad built into it!

    How about a small bottle with a 2 foot plastic tube? Duct tape it to the body, fill it with beer, and drink while you play! I realize that has nothing to do with electronics, but it's tastier.
