DayJams (week 3)
This is the diagram for a five string bass I have plans for if I ever end up with the time and money available to create it. The fingerboard would be made from a purple wood and it would only have 12 frets. It would have 3 pickups and the strings would go through the body at the end. The inlays would be several 3 leaf clovers a 4 leaf clover and a large one of leaves and intertwining vines. The jack for the cable would be at a better angle designed to reduce wear on it.
In this picture the different parts are circled in different colors. The dark blue is the strap, the light blue is where the strings enter the body, the green is the pickups (they pick up the motion of the strings and change it into electrical signals), the red is the neck section without frets, which would be a massive inlay.
On a different note, I performed my second and last dayjams song, which, despite my past predictions, was a full nine minutes long in the studio version. The style of the song is almost impossible to define, as we had a funk section, with another section being reminiscent of “Message In A Bottle” by The Police.
