Craft Your Own Bass Guitar Pickup

Bass guitar is a wonderful thing. I’ve been playing since I was about 8-years-old and truly love it. Not everyone is as fortunate as I am to own a bass guitar though, so if you’ve got $5.00, a toolkit, a shoebox and a piece of wood, you’re set for a weekend of jamming out.

According to this Instructables article, you can easily make a pickup for a bass guitar using popsicle sticks and neodymium magnets with a little wiring for good measure. Seems like a great idea for the weekend if you’ve got the time and the guitar.
