Bogdon Box Bass In The Hizzle...
Got home from snowboarding today to find a gigantic box waiting for me. Inside that box was another box, in the form of the Bogdon Box Bass kit. Clickies for a larger image if you're curious as to the contents. The yellow bubble-pak envelope is the pickup, I assume. It has a little Radio Shack piezo in it. It was taped to the inside of the box, and I think I shouldn't have either removed or opened it. However, no instructions came, so I thought they might be in there.
As you can plainly see, Pablo is helping with the assembly process. He's really a helpful cat, as cats go. We have two other cats that couldn't care less, but Pablo is a different story. He takes an interest in anything.
In any case, to the Bogdon web site, where I will hopefully find some assembly instructions. This shouldn't be too hard to puzzle out if there aren't any, but it'd be handy.
UPDATE: Well, that wasn't so hard. No instructions in the box, no instructions on the website, but quite frankly there's not a lot to it. A little bit of experimentation was required to understand (a) how the fuck the "tuning pegs" were supposed to work, and (b) where the pickup should be placed. But once I figured those two things out, the rest was gravy. Here is a pic of the finished object. Sound-wise, it's no Albert Jakstadt, but then again, it does't suck, either. I'll record some samples tomorrow.
It took about an hour total to put it together. If I made another one, I'd spend some more time on details, but quite frankly, I'm fairly certain I don't need more than one of these.
