In the past, Burls Art has shown off his guitar-building abilities by making instruments out of jawbreakers, Himalayan salt, coffee beans, and more. This time, he’s changed things up by building an electric bass guitar, using about 2,000 LEGO bricks to form its body. We love the colorful pattern he came up with.
Awesome Bass Guitar
Corian is a durable polymer typically used for sinks and kitchen countertops. But in the hands of maker Tim Sway, it’s the body for an electric bass guitar. He used his Avid CNC router to carve both the neck and body out of some reclaimed pieces. Given the material’s stone-like qualities, he went with an ancient Greek motif.
Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody is an incredibly challenging song to play when you have the proper instruments. To prove his bass-playing chops, musician Zander Zon managed to perform a compelling rendition entirely on his bass guitar. We’re amazed that he was able to extract such range from the 4-string instrument.
The fidgetspinnerpocalypse is upon us, and these kinetic toys are everywhere now. Musician Davie504 thought he’d try something different than just wasting time with his fidget spinner, and used it to strum the strings on his bass guitar. Turns out it’s perfect for surf rock.
