Audiovox #736 Electronic Bass

Recommended Posts


I'm a hobby bassist, and kinda interested in making my own instrument... and while looking up the history of the electric bass, I found an article on the -first ever- electric bass, which is here:


I am thinking that making a replica of this would be a good project, were it not for one problem:

There is virtually NO INFORMATION on the construction of this instrument. This is - things like, if it were painted, what kind of pickups were used, the scale length etc.

This isn't going to be a full project - I'll be using pre-made bits (necks, tuners, bridge etc) and due to cost restraints some of the parts would be replaced with modern equivalents - but I'm still interested in trying to make it as original as possible.

Apparently it lives now in Seattle, USA - could anyone offer anymore info?
