  2. Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

    Note that TalkBass will host unlimited attachments for you, all the time, for free ;)  Just hit that "Upload a File" button.  You are also free to use our Media Gallery if you want a place to create albums, organize photos, etc :)

    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!
