Minerva Student Builds Bass Guitar

conor

Using a piece of aged pine he found in his garage, Minerva senior band member Conor Freeland used a band saw to build his own custom electric bass guitar. He then painted the body with green and blue wood stain. The neck and other electrical parts he bought online and installed himself. The bass is about an inch longer than a standard electric bass.

You can hear Conor, his custom bass, and the rest of the Minerva High School Jazz Band in action at Friday home varsity basketball games beginning Friday, December 4th.
