@Tom Hoglund well i found an old electric doublebass neck, it was all worm-eaten and the headstock was broken in two pieces but not completely detached. i fixed the headstock with Vinavil glue and clamps, and I filled the woodworm holes with the same glue using a syringe.

I put a 10X10 Cm log all along the case (as you can see in the image) to withstand the tension of the strings and i attached the neck to the log with some glue, and secured it with screws.

i have no more images of the inside, but you can check out this little video i posted where i show more details. https://cigarboxnation.com/video/trunk-double-bass

Like to hear how it sounds too!

Very cool - some info on how you built it would be really interesting.

That has a coolness factor of 9.999. And it has a 10,000 miles and 1000 miles look. Excellent.
