New bass... but it's missing a string

And the frets fell off too!

I believe I saw something like this in an Avengers movie.

Hmm… I don’t think I’ve seen it but maybe I was subliminally influenced?

@Korrigan That looks fantastic. Great work.
Is that a hot rail guitar pickup ? If it is, and it works, I might well steal your idea.

Thanks guys!

@eric.kiser, they aren’t from the same board but they almost look like it. :slight_smile:

@jonathanhaynes43, yessir it’s a cheap tele hotrail and it works very well.

I really like the juxtaposition of the wood, diamond plate, and the painted body. Well done.

I’m blown away, @Korrigan .

The whole aesthetic is out of this world, a sort of retro hillbilly-death metal-industrial vibe to it. Awesome. Also, the whole idea of a headed headless bass, sweet, sweet irony.

@MC-Canadastan, I’m glad somebody picked up on that. :slight_smile:

I’m not the kind of guy that comes up with a plan and then starts to build. I start to build and come up with the plan as I go. It wasn’t going to be a headless until I found the chrome skull and crossbones. Decided I wanted to put it on the headstock but I’d already made the neck and there wasn’t room for it and the tuners. Adapt and overcome! lol

Are the skulls a water slip decal, or if not, how did you apply them?

It’s vinyl wrap, like you’d use on a car.

Yep. Looks like the Terminator’s front yard.

Skulls aren’t my thing (I’m more of a steampunk guy) but the customer said he loved skulls… so he got skulls. :slight_smile:
