Ok guys, me and my dad were talkin today, and we have a bunch of megaboard lying aroung(megaboard is 3" thick plywood). So im gonna build a bass out of some of the board.
So im asking you guys for ideas for a shape. I already know that i want to put some effects in it (fuzz etc.)

I know that it probly wont have a good tone, but i just want to build something different.

A plywood bass?

Why not build a nice Cab? It would be perferct for that...

but i doubt plywood is going to give you a very good tone as a guitar :P

well the problem with building a cab is that this stuff is very heavy.

and i already said that i know its not gonna have good tone.

Plywood is good to practise with, but don't invest loads of money into some plywood bass. Once you have the skill to build a bass out of real wood, just transfer the stuff you put into the plywood bass into the real wood bass.

Thats what I was planning to do. But im kinda stuck deciding what shape i should make it. I want something wild and outrageous, and i plan to put some effects in it.

as i said earlier, ive got a design decided upon. Now i need to decide on the pickup and i need a schematic for 1 bass humbucker with vol and tone, and a fuzz and chorus built in.

THIS website has a wiring diagram of a bass humber with volume and tone. As for chorus and fuzz schematics go to THIS website and pick a chorus and fuzz schematic. There are a lot of models on it.
