Introduction: Pimp My Upright~

we took an abused upright bass and made it fit in our rockabilly band~

Step 1: Stripped It,

varnish remover, not a good idea to breath this for more than 2 seconds, whew~

Step 2: Sanded It

used a random orbital sander to keep it smooth~

Step 3: Primer

we primered about 3 coats

Step 4: Flat Black Paint

there are about 5 layers of paint, we sanded between each layer as to make it primo!

Step 5: Diamond Plate F-hole Covers

we play loud so we needed to get rid of the feeback~

    why not just add flame job as well

    very nice joel... also, cant wait to play again... hehehe

    makes me want to go listen to stray cats strut

    makes me want to listen to some psychobilly

    hell yeah

    This is seriously going to deaden the tone of the instrument.

    what tone? if it was a great bass i would have never done it. But we also use for live band situation and are using a pickup for it. good thought though~
