"This is a Ruby amp, it's a variation of the Smokey amp. It has a great tone that many say emulates a Fender Champ. Has a Volume and Gain control and you can do a input mod to sound more like a Bassman and adding a Tone control isn't hard…"

"The 4 string I plan to keep 4 strings but the neck is just 1x3 right now.. want to cut the headstock into a more legit shape. Maybe sand down the sides of the neck. Pick out two other strings too!"

Works in progress

This morning I finished the basics on a 3 string slide bass but need to obtain a 3rd string. Currently tuned to D and A. Last week I partially assembled what will eventually be a 4 string guitar with fretboard. Currently researching building an amplifier and will add pickups later. Also, I will be cutting down the 4 string neck.
