I’d probably cut a basic Fender bridge in half & use 1 side of a 2-piece Precision pickup. Need to figure out the neck, though. 2-strings wide would be too small. So full width, with the 2 strings down the middle? I gotta workshop this some more.
@Devils_Rancher A little inspiration for this idea:
@fobo I am now motivated to get a slide. It could be even more out of tune than my fretless. 😄
@fobo any idea what make that is? The headstock looks like a Hagstrom, but I can’t make out the logo. I have a Hagstrom in pieces in my closet that really needs to be put back together.
@Devils_Rancher i have no idea. I looked into it once and it seemed like a pawn shop special kinda thing. I've never tried slide bass, but man what a sound he had.
@fobo I may be unleashing slide bass on the world the next time Carbon 7 records.
I think it would probably be funnier if you got a bass and sliced the whole thing in half. Then you have two Half-Basses!
@anthracite Ha, I could put a board between them & have a double-neck half-bass.
Put a couple of little poles in between so there is a very definite GAP between them.
