Creative Suggestions Please!

Recommended Posts

Afternoon all ye kind basschat folk,

So I've just bought a cheap but very solid body from our @Paul S, I'm not too interested in turning it back into a bass, I'd rather turn it into something else...

The pickups I've just put in do work and the bass has a function loom so with a bridge and neck it could be a bass again very easily, but that's boring and I have all the basses I need for now! 

With that being said, I'm after suggestions on what I can do with this thing. My first thought was a clock... I can quite easily buy a cheap analogue or digital clock mechanism and mount it in the bridge position, and hey! A clock! But before I do that, I'm interested to know what other options are out there, so, what do YOU think I should do with this? 

If there are a few good suggestions then I'll put those to a vote and act accordingly!

No! That would be a form of heresy to deficate through the body of a bass on a daily basis!

I still think a toilet seat would be nice.

Table?

Not a bad shout, but... this body has a rear cavity cover so that would spoil the look. Plus I have too many tables lurking around as it is!

Is that a table for little people? :ph34r:

Perfect height for me to put my hand over the side and reach tea, beer, tablet or phone.

With a pole screwed where the neck should be it could make :
a Lollipop for helping people across the road 
or
a coat stand for one coat belonging to someone with round shoulders .

Ok, going a bit far fetched here but could you get some Bluetooth bits and use it as a cool wall mounted controller for an audio player (use the knobs and have a readout in the pickup cavities)?

a cheese board?

You can always fill any cavities with epoxy.

That could make a nice bass!  Rosewood bound fretboard, swap the PU covers & knobs for cream ones, maybe gold hardware.

Something that utilises its weight would make sense. A garden parasol base, perhaps, or for the local police to bosh down doors when carrying out dawn raids.
