Little Nicky

Little Nicky is a 2 string “G D” bass guitar. Building a bass guitar presents different issues than a 6 string or 4 string. The strings are much longer and thicker. The tuners are different and of very unique dimensions. But it was very satisfying to complete this build.

Little Nicky presented a number of challenges and problems. It’s normal for problems to arise during a build. Measurements may be a little off. Brittle things snap. Repair and rework can start to add up. Little Nicky was a real winner in this area though. And that’s how he got his name.
