For that Gretsch Electromatic Junior Jet bass, I highly recommend LaBella shortscale flatwounds. They will tighten up the tension and get rid of that floppiness. Also, the tone is much more musical to me, and the whole thing just delivers the old-school thump.

When I saw this video on YouTube for FrettedAmericana, I ended up with serious Newport B4B gas.

gig bag for short scale instruments

Anyone have a suggestion for gig bags? Specifically for short scale instruments. The regular sized bags do work, but there's tons of extra floppy room by the headstock... just wondering if there's a "short" gig bag. Guitar bags seem just a little too short. All thoughts welcome....

This is mine:



Replaced the bridge (Shaller 3d-4) and the electronics (a varitone circuit). Pickups are next, probably DiMarzio DP126 set.

I had a dream a few months back that my cat was a kick-a$$ jazz drummer and we would jam all day long!

You can hear it on my MySpace.
Holy...

That five-year-old picture of a bass stopped me in my tracks. Wow.

Oh man, just wow.

Lime green "Cup of Fungus" bass?

drbassman,

Can you please repost a link to a picture of your lime green "Cup of Fungus" Mustang bass? I'm the guy that painted that bass lime green and painted the COF logo on the pickguard in 1989. I'd love to see that bass again, but the link to the pic on PhotoBucket no longer works (from post #260 in this thread)

That Mustang bass was originally a sunburst. It belonged to the dad of one of my friends. The dad stopped playing bass years earlier, so he let his son have the bass. We were in a band called "Cup of Fungus", so we needed a kick-ass looking bass. I intentionally painted it with a brush to give it that sloppy "I don't give a damn" feel.

I wish Chris had sold that bass to me, but if you could repost the picture of it, I'd be very grateful.

Thanks!

Looking for a short scale

Okay you short scale guys. Hit me with the closest short scale out there to the sound of a fender jazz. I'm using an american jazz through an ampeg svt and I love it. I've got the short finger curse though so I'd really love to find something that is easier to play. I know nothing is going to match the sound of my jazz with Fralins but I would sacrifice a little to not have to work so hard. What ya got for me?......a mustang maybe?

Other than that I don't know of any, but I'm sure others will come along with some more examples.
