"The entire build was designed with sustain in mind. It's not built with conventional materails, and sustains very well with its own unique tone brought out by the piezo. "

"Another benefit of interchangeable side pieces is the extra weight to offset a heavy neck that often plagues Cigar Box Guitar/Bass builders. Some people say that the added mass helps with sustain too. YMMV "

Phil Farabough replied to Patrick's discussion first bass build in the group Cigar Box Basses
"A full 4 string bass has a fair amount of tension on the bridge as well as the neck joint because of its length. These 2 areas need to be strong. Have no exp with floaters. Cant advise there.  Any bass pickup will work. But choose wisely.…"
