    So well, i had too much lutefisk and fårikål, and too little of the blue pills, so today i started building the stupidest instrument ever! :D

    Take a deep breath.... The Erlend_G signature model 1-String Fretless Piccolo Bass!!! :rollno: :hyper:

    I'm making the body out of an old wooden oak door, and it's going to have brass back and sides! For the neck i'm using a hunk of pine, and brass for the fingerboard too. It's going to be around 20" scale or something, and i'm stringing it up with a guitar string :bag: :D

    Home made pickup with home made preamp and bulit in distortion ;)

    Aaaah, worst instrument ever! I can't wait until i'm gonna play it :eek: :meh: :cool:

    Cheers!
