kinda how they put the dowel in a violin
build a ribbon motor to a suspended dowel
My guess is that probably won't work very well, due to the bidirectional nature of ribbon mics - the pressure on the 2 sides of the ribbon will tend to balance in the enclosed body of the instrument. Better to use a pressure gradient mic like an omni condenser than a velocity type like a ribbon.
Also, rockabilly standup basses tend to get knocked around a lot and ribbons are fragile.
