ahhhhh wallpaper! that's brilliant! omg thank you, I am cosplaying Haruko and the guitar I made is a piece of shit (warping, etc.) and I live in a small house so there's no place to paint. I'm using foam instead of wood but I'll go to grab wallpaper soon! THANKS A ZILLION

also for this you can get legit schematics of a Ricky and invert so you can make Haruko's left-handed bass. That's what I did for my guitar, removes the guess work

lolz xD thats cuz this tutorial dont really focuse only on how to make bass. the only change that you need to do is with the numbers of strings.

Awesome!!!!!!!!! But I don't know anyone with a power saw, is there any other material you'd reccommend?
Reply
:iconopalichan:
OpaliChan Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2011
you could use an ordinery saw, althoe itll take more time o:
if you stuck with the plywood thingy then use only carton. thats my advice c; good luck~

How much did this cost? o_o Would you say it was over $100?
Reply
:iconopalichan:
OpaliChan Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2010
not at all, the only matirial that is a bit expensive is the plywood. other then that everything is really cheap.

Sitar is more detailed and the shape is different from my guitar on the tutorial..but i guess you can use some of the matirials i used.
