    I needed a bass inside, and my abg is without strings at the moment, so I broke out my old violin bass... It was sounding pretty nice with some flats Herm got me, going through my Ampeg B100-R.

    So naturally, when all is going well what does one do? One experiments, of course.

    So here is my bass:


    Now I am going to move the pickup back into the bridge area. By the way, this is actually a bridge position Carvin pickup for a guitar. :p


    I also decided to move the jack to the front, so now I have a nice hole in the side to do something with. Hmm... Maybe I can stick an estes rocket in there and ignite it during a show.


    Just showing something I did before, this head used to be the standard scroll head with the slots in the headstock and the machine heads pointing down. So, I filled the slots with wood putty and sanded it down, then drilled holes and used some regular machine heads.

    that's the nicest headstock design i have ever seen!
  3. So, how much do you want for it!
    I want that bass!

    Never mind I seem to be a little low on funds. :D
