"I would recommend some type or trussrod for anything with a scale of 25" or greater and more than 3 strings. A bass will have a lot of string pressure even if you only have 2 strings. Oak or Maple or other similar wood would be best for a bass…"

"John, The piezo disc worked well for me but, each build is different. I have built a couple CBG's (not a bass though) with tins and piezo discs and getting sound is not a problem. If the piezo is mounted to the tin use a good bed of adhesive…"

"Hey John, I built a 2 string bass with a wheelbarrow handle for the neck, and weedwhacker strings. I put a disc in it, but had to replace it with a rod because it wasn't loud enough. I have pics and a short demo video on my page. "

"I am also planning a 2 string bass, but using a tin, obviously with a through neck (oak). Like Bruce, above, using a piezo disc (never tried before) any thoughts or observations welcomed. Cheers"
