Change acoustic to Acoustic Bass


Recommended Posts

Simply moving the saddle backwards doesn't work as nicely as it might on a solid body guit tar. The bracing is all wrong and you'll end up destrying the top.


Best way is to find a cheap bolt-on neck acoustic, lengthen the neck, or rather install a longer neck, which you'll have to manufacture yourself to the current specs of an existing acoustic bass. Then put on heavier strings with a concomitant rework / replacement of the nut.

Make your own from scrap.




No, I meant scrap, not scratch.
