WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOO (Ding Dong the bass is done!)

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Woodsbass, Jul 30, 2012.

  1. Hey guys.

    I ordered a fretless singlecut bass from Kevin Siebold at Krappy guitars about a little over a week ago, and it's done!

    Check out these progress pictures, and this video of the final product.



  2. Maybe I should have called the thread "Hey look, another Fender Jazz"? :p

    Another picture appears!

    KRAPPY GUITARS--Krapmeister Kevin Siebold
    relays the philosophy that guides our efforts:

    Our instruments are built for frugal people
    who aren't very concerned with regard to
    quality, construction, materials, or safety.

    The instruments are crafted from whatever
    we find suitable. Pedigree of wood is not
    a priority for us. We might get it from
    a local hardware store, or use some old
    shipping crates, or skids. Who knows??!!

    If you are intrigued enough to purchase,
    we will provide you with a complete history
    for your instrument. The history might be
    akin to this:

    Wood: leftover 2x4 from a construction site.
    Strings: used about 3 years ago on an old guitar.
    Pickups: some buncha crap we snagged from some guy.
    Electronics: whatever we can scrounge up!

    Our warranty: There is no warranty, expressed or
    implied. We fully acknowledge our product is crap, and
    your purchase signifies that you have entered into an
    agreement to buy a product that is lacking in quality,
    contains poor materials, and is worthy of much abuse
    and destruction. We will in no way provide any
    customer service, so don't even waste your time!!!

    A week?!?! Dang, that's quick!!

    Cool bass. I'd throw some flats on it, might mellow it out a hair.

    Wellllllll.....I guess "they're honest about it."

  13. That's amazing. The website is addictive.
  14. Go read the Krappy bassists thread, its just a joke. He really cares about his customers and will do anything within reason to make sure they're happy with their bass. (From what I've read)

    Cool. Does Kevin play hillbilly music in his yard with his buddies like a certain other builder his basses kinda remind me of?:bag:
  16. Okay, I need one.
