Check this out. A 'making of' vid is in the comments. Water Bottle Bass
OK, it obviously has potential. Also been thinking along lines of an upright bass. Now I have to figure out a way of obtaining an empty bottle, as I think the empties are supposed to go back in return for new bottles. However........ I do work nights, so......... watch his space!

Great site, thanks Randy. Diddn't realise that wastub basses and their relatives have a sub culture of their own.
There was a water cooler bottle sitting next to the trash bin at work for the past two days. I finally said the hell with it and grabbed it. No idea what I'll do with it, but one idea I had was to saw it in half and use it as the back of a standup bass (or two). It's the kind that has a handle molded into it... might be possible to make it work as a carry handle for the instrument. One of them anyway...
