The half Bass by Brian Leach was commissioned for a post-apocalyptic music video. To fit with that aesthetic a mishmash of off-cuts was laminated together to make the body. 


Decorative relic screws give a steam-punk look while the recycled computer switches push it toward cyber-punk.


It's most unusual features are 3 strings and a piezo pickup.


Materials: Oak, Maple, upcycled plywood.
