    Just bought a 90's Danelectro Longhorn and do not like the scale. So I am hoping to trade or sell this blue shorty for $275 shipped. SOLD

    The bass has chips in the binding and a 1/2 inch long cut in the back. I could not get clear pictures of the aged parts.

    Though I didn't appreciate the size, this bass does have useful pickup controls.

    Looking for larger scale basses in a similar price range.

    A friend of mine plays one of these at our prayer meetings, they have a really sweet sound that I wish I could get out of any of my basses. I'm afraid to replace the strings on it because it might change the tone. It is a semi hollow bass and is really light. Not something you see every day. You'd definitely stand out from every other precision and jazz player out there. Any short scale player should appreciate it, GLWTS!

    Thanks! It is definitely a featherweight, especially compared to my T-40. And each of those knobs is stacked, volume is the black ring and tone is the white center.

    It does not come with a case. However, a wonderfully flimsy and paper thin gig bag will be included with the sale.

    For the additional shipping charge I could. Though I had wanted the buyer to play it first.

    Here are some attempted pictures of the chip in the binding and a scuff in the paint I just found.

    I had the 2007 reissue. It was a lot of fun to play, and they sure do have a unique tone. The short scale always felt a bit awkward though. Anybody who digs the shortys owes it to themselves to pull the trigger on this one.
    FWIW- they fit beautifuly in guitar bags/cases.
