Convert bass to Guitar?

Dat guy

Recommended Posts

I have always loved the look of the Epiphone Viola bass and the general beatles vibe it goes for, but I don't play bass.I have seen a few basses which were converted to guitars, but those either had a replaced bolt on neck or a standard easily replaced tailpiece. Its a semi-hollow as well so I'm not sure if it would be possible for your average Joe to replace the tailpiece, or if the bass could even take the pressure from 6 strings. Is my idea even possible on this model or similar violin shaped basses?

Would really appreciate some help
