Home Depot Box Bass

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by shrimpflea, Jul 20, 2012.

  1. My 2 string home made box bass using a Home Depot box, popular neck, bolt tuners, duct tape and weed whacker line. It's a shoddy, hastily built instrument but it sounds pretty good.

    Portland oregon
    sound clips
  3. If you don't mind me asking, why didn't you go with 4 strings? It seems like the neck would be wide enough. I could be dead wrong...

    Oh, and sound clips. I would live to hear this puppy
  4. Soon as I figure it out I'll try to get some up.
  5. Went with 2 strings for simplicity....but yes the neck is wide enough for 4...in fact the neck is way too wide....it's very uncomfortable to play, don't know what I was thinking....need to modify or replace it.
