My soon to be 6 year old son loves music and is on his way to being somewhat talented. He has a guitar and a really cool drum set but he has asked for a Bass for 2 years now. Not just any bass, a POINTY bass like Gene Simmons bass. lol Now, this kid is pretty specific about what he likes and wants--He told me he would also really like a Green Striped Explorer bass. Now, besides the fact that they don't make many short scale bases, they make virtually 0 decent LH short scale, pointy basses. I have an idea and here it is. I say I build a 25 or 25.5 scale LH guitar or build one from parts and convert it to a bass. Fill the tuner holes on the headstock and redrill 4 holes for bass tuners. even a 28" short scale bass is going to be too big for a kid this small-He is normal sized, or slightly bigger than most 6 year olds but a bass is a big guitar. I might even have to build him a bass from scratch--if I do this, I will need to hook up with the Mighty Greasebox and provide the beer and pizza while we hack out this monster-- Give me some ideas here people!!!
