Leave it to a vampire queen to transform a battle ax family heirloom into a playable bass guitar.
Instead of making it out of foam like any of the previous props made on the webseries, Abbott kitbashes an electric bass guitar kit, so the finished product is a playable prop.
The process looks relatively straightforward. Abbott saws and glues the wooden bass form into a shape that looks more like Marceline’s musical instrument of choice. Once the bass is painted and the extra details are added, the instrument can be put together just like a large puzzle.
After the bass is completed, Abbott invites special guest YouTuber and musician Danny Secretion to try it out with an impromptu gig.
Previous “DIY Prop Shop” episodes have taught us how to make a Portal Gun from “Rick Morty,” a Star Wars X-Wing helmet, a “Necronomicon” grimoire, the M41-A Pulse Rifle from “Aliens” and a hoverboard prop from “Back to the Future Part II” from using everyday items.
