Knex Guitar (Bass)

Picture of Knex Guitar (Bass)
This my entry for TGKT Round 2. It is a bass guitar, very heavy (more than a Knexsayer!) and I can get at least 2 tunes out of it, with varying degrees of accuracy. See my video post for those (should be up before the 15th but seeing as each vid takes about 15 mins to upload...). I do realise that it only has one string, but it is much easier to play like this, and can support all 4 strings. It is slightly shorter that a 3/4 size bass, as the only even slightly playable parts of the strings are right by the top of the neck.

knexguy (author)  Undermig5 years ago
Destroyed it after about a week. Still have a bit of it though.

Hey il make you a deal.well if your interested and plz be... show me how to make this awsome guitar. and il add some pikups home made and il show you how to make it and insert it on this guitar to put it on a amp. cause well i want a knex guitar bas and this is the secound 1 i found. and its the best.
knexguy (author)  Undermig5 years ago
The other one probably resembled a harp. It would be no good to play off an amp, as it cannot support real strings.

Ok well i guess thats ok... But you or anyone else can post it... please do... And i want to see the crossbow
knexguy (author)  shmi1175 years ago
The crossbow uses a new mechanism, meaning that it can theoretically have twice the power.

Now You must build drums a guitar and a mike and a ps3 out of knex and we will play ROck band
It's funny; I was recently trying to rig up an odd bass drum mechanism with that trampoline from the big air ball tower, one of those balls from the red designer kit thing, and a bunch of rubber bands and big square platform... It ultimately ended up failing miserably. I'm sure knexguy could do better than me :D
XD THats so awesome
knexguy (author)  In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida5 years ago
Lol, I'm not sure about the PS3 but a mike and possibly drums could definitely be done. I'll look into it. As for the guitar, just use this.
:] coooooollllllll keep on buildin'
