Making a bass guitar from an old water cooler bottle

Recycling is at the heart of our service here at The Water Cooler Company. We try our utmost best to do as much as we can to preserve the environment while delivering five-star service to our customers. Most of us are well aware of the harrowing effects plastic bottles have on the environment when dumped on landfills or left at parks, beaches and other natural environments. A plastic bottle can take a minimum of 450 years to biodegrade, so it is vital to recycle and reuse as much as possible.

Every once in a while we see someone going the extra mile by taking a simple water bottle, turning it into something amazing.

The bottles used on water coolers may become faulty and leak at times. Instead of throwing them away, some creative DIY enthusiasts repurpose them into anything from planters, hoods to protect plants in winter, percussion instruments and now our favourite: a bass guitar.

One particularly creative muso took a water cooler bottle, a piece of wood, standard E and A bass strings and the mechanics from an old Ibanez electric guitar.

In the video below you can see Black Sabbath’s Ironman played on this awesome DIY bass guitar:


This is how he did it:

Respect.
