Introduction: 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.

Undermig (author)2009-03-12

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.

author
knexguy (author)Undermig2009-03-13

The other one probably resembled a harp. It would be no good to play off an amp, as it cannot support real strings.

Tried to remake it but failed. I am also working on a crossbow at the moment so I'm a bit busy, also heping Barrax out with something.

author
shmi117 (author)knexguy2009-02-10

Ok well i guess thats ok... But you or anyone else can post it... please do... And i want to see the crossbow

author
knexguy (author)shmi1172009-02-11

The crossbow uses a new mechanism, meaning that it can theoretically have twice the power.

I have joined but it hasn't registered, the owner probably has to accept me. I will add this as soon as I am in.

Now You must build drums a guitar and a mike and a ps3 out of knex and we will play ROck band

author

lol

author

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

author

XD THats so awesome

author

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.

author

:] coooooollllllll keep on buildin'

author

Thanks very much, I will!

Ok, watch out for the vids too! Yeah, I'll try. I have had it taken apart for a month or so now, but I am confident I can rebuild.

author
Vynash (author)knexguy2009-01-13

author
knexguy (author)Vynash2009-01-14

Ok I probably upload AVI's, so you'll have to convert.

author
Skreetsha (author)knexguy2009-01-21

I know a good converter site: Zamzar.com It works. I used it to convert my MP4 clip from my R.C.S 720 Cam (my cellphone) to wmv, so i could use it for the whole clip :D

author
knexguy (author)Skreetsha2009-01-21

Ok, I will probably do that then, more people can watch WMVs.

author
Skreetsha (author)knexguy2009-01-21

Vynash (author)knexguy2009-01-14

Nice! I had I idea for one of those once...

author
knexguy (author)I_am_Canadian2009-01-13

This is actually the V3, the first 2 failed because the body fitted to the neck too loosely, this one had (I think) 15 points of contact.

author
I_am_Canadian (author)knexguy2009-01-13

Had? If you still have it, make the neck a tadbit longer if I were you.
