    what do you think of the shape?
    the head is a good old gibson thunderbird style.
    and the body... well i like it. it is a litte bit like a switched ric.

    i don't have any ideas of the wood or elektronic, but i have enough time to think about it :smug: because i have no time to build it for the next years. :crying:


    ups no link to the picture (better: blueprint):

    Is it a lefty?

    Otherwise you're building a neck-dive machine.

    To clarify BurningSkies' comment...
    Your strap pin should be at aproximately the 12th fret. With your body style, it would be around the 17th fret, and so you'd get crazy neck-dive.
    That's why the top horn is usually longer than the bottom one. It's a simple matter of physics.

    Neat thought though. I'd like to see a better drawing of it. ;)

    Looks sweet IMO. Do you have any woods in mind of what you'd like it to look like/
  6. definitely move the upper horn! No offense, but when I look at this I get creeped out just like I do when I look at left handed instruments. Just odd!
  7. looks a lot like an ibanez iceman bass.


  8. just attach the strap to the bottom horn and run it behind the neck...would that help the neck dive? Well, I guess it'd balance really odd :eyebrow:
