Well, my main instrument these days is a cigar box guitar. Having friends over and attempting (poorly, I might add) to have an ol' fashioned jam-sesh, quickly falls apart with a poor choice in instruments. Hence the bass. The kinda CBG matched WBB.
First wind-up sounded like crap due to the strings being old dirty crap strings, the thicker one sourced from a slaughtered piano from the 1820's. New strings fixed that, and yeah. The combo of guitar and bass is a lot more satisfying than guitar and guitar.
