"http://www.tdpri.com/threads/presenting-blackie-my-guitar-bass-project.752919/ Here's the thread for details. You can run a guitar signal to a bass amp and get convincing bass sound at least using the low strings. His pickup only gets the low E…"

"That is a great sound!  Sorry, but how does he get the bass sound?  Is he using an octaver?"

"You still get a little plate influence in there. If you guys get a chance, check out Duesenberg Guitar's Rezobro guitar. It looks like a Les Paul guitar with a round plate on top, but it has a unique bridge/pickup feature to maximize/minimize…"

"Sounds like a good plan. It is a really cool plate. Maybe you could hollow out a little space underneath the plate."

Bass/lead hybrid resonator!

Hiya folks!not sure the world is ready for this but I've just finished my first license plate bass/lead hybrid!  I read a tip that works very well - put the pup below the plate cos it's magnetic.I built my own box to fit the plate.  Learned a lot about basic woodwork in the process!I'm pleased how it looks, but got to admit the lead strings sound a lot better than the bass ones, so I'm going to restring with all lead strings to make a resonator.  But I'm not going to give up on the bass/lead…See More

"Nice video, like the tone he gets with the wood bridge and tailpiece. Here's a link to the video I was talking about. Uses a 2 pole pickup from Delta Groove. www.youtube.com/watch?v=P-5L3iRxyIo"

"I saw  some "baytars" which had bottom strings bass and top lead.  That's what I was going to originally make, but when I put the light 6 bass strings on I liked it as it was.  I'll make a baytar as one of my next…"

"Squier has a Vintage BassVI for decent money, but your probably getting convincing bass sounds on it. I saw a video recently of a guitar with a bass pickup running to a bass amp. with medium gauge strings, he gets guitar and bass at the same time. A…"

"Hi Paul,  it is just an ordinary lead guitar neck.  I fancied a six string that was easy to play and this has done the trick - I sing and play bass in my band so I wanted something like this but couldn't really find anything ready…"

Jamie replied to Jamie's discussion rescue!
"HI all!  Thanks for advice, all very useful tips - it all adds to my currently limited knowledge! As an update, I had made what we call round here two "school boy errors", and damaged the pick up as I hadn't allowed room between…"

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I own a dozen shop bought guitars so I'm really excited about creating something individual. I'm also getting into more rootsier sounds like Delta blues so looking forward to playing slide. I've started a band with a 50's Sun Studio vibe, so really enjoying designing and building original basses to use with band.
