U-bass conversion project

Post by Mottlefeeder »

Update - kept the strings as spares, scrapped the rest - end of saga.

As covered in a DIY thread, this is a conversion of a 3/4 size acoustic guitar into a bass-uke, as described in several places on the web.

Pros
I've done all the woodwork
I've moved the bridge to give better intonation
It's got £25 worth of Aquila "Thundergut" strings on it, with no damage within 26 inches (66 cm) of the bridge on the E and G strings, and 27 inches (68.5 cm) on the A and D strings.

Cons
It's passive
It's fretless?
The pick-up is broken

It's yours for the cost of the postage, or less if you come and collect it.
