Where's Uranus? replied to Patrick's discussion first bass build in the group Cigar Box Basses
"I'd say no on the pickup issue. If the strings are metal covered and the pickup is magnetic you are fine, I built a bass out an old strat copy, and kept the original pickups, does D0 (octave below standard bass E) just fine."

Where's Uranus? commented on Will Carter's group Cigar Box Basses
"It's a matter of taste, and playability. Generally the strings are a little closer at the nut, and a little wider at the bridge, but they don't have to be. I'd suggest looking at some company that makes after market parts and getting…"

"I'd been wanting a nice long scale fretless, I had a porch rail neck on it earlier, but was digging the flat part. Maybe get some nice nylon coated strings for it."

"Repurposed old strat body, and a 1x3. Tuned DGC. 35" scale. Two proofs of concept: 1. flat fretless fingerboards are fun. 2. you can use guitar tuners for bass strings."
