"Bass wavelengths are LONG and have shallow ampitude ratio. Bigger box? Of course, for unampified sounds...
I found a BIG box, for Cuesta Rey cigars. It's 17x9x3 inches. You might use a paintbox, or a good sized cutlery…"
"Your scrolls look real good! I'll check out the Mottola method and see what I can do. I hadn't thoght about adding the scrolls into the head which some of your pics show. Love getting (stealing) new ideas!"

Jeremiah, I'm glad to have you for a nation friend. I like your bass a lot. Nice photos of it in progress and you use one of my fave tools, a four in hand rasp. Like the single f hole Padron a lot too.
I made a simple cbg 3 string bass a while back. Could not play it much, but a bass player said it was pretty good and told me what needed improvement. I did the improvements. I intend to give it to a different bass player, but have not gotten that done yet.
Right now, I am messing too much with builds and not playing as much as I should.
Hi Jeremiah. Did you check out my blog? There is information on there about what I am doing. I am going to use Washers and Wing nuts for Tuners. I wanted to make it headless. During an experimental run I strung it up with some Weed eater string that I had around the house. It sounded pretty good. I am going to rub Tung oil it over the next few nights and hook up my pezo and jack and it should be ready to go. I can’t wait to hear what it sounds like when I’m done. Have a great day.
This box is in for a shock cause im gonna rip off the top and replace it with an old securicor sign and maybe put a single coil hot rail in to beef things up ?
and yes i was going for a early east anglian sutton hoo type helm but this will change to a type of closed helm, id also like to make a pigface bascinet or sallet helm.
but having only 24 hours in a day is a major set back(i must try harder to win the lottery)
Cheers fella for the kind words
Its actually a harrods fish knife set i was kindly given by my lovely mother in law.
the helm is just another one of my first try outs (ran out of rivets)
maybe i should build a cbg in shining armour if i joust had the time?
