New Bass Day! The Resolution of the "Best Short Scale Basses under $1000" Thread!

  1. First off, thanks to everyone for all of your suggestions. I was all set to buy an MIJ Fender Mustang RI when the opportunity to purchase this finally came through. I can't thank Ken enough. There isn't a more perfect bass for me.

    Looks nice! What is it?
     
  3. That kinda info would have been nice in the OP, wouldn't it!

    It's a Reverend Guitars Mike Watt SIGNATURE bass prototype. But that's a mouthful. I'm just going with THUD STAFF.

    30" scale, SG-like body style, Precision type pickup, Dano inspired redburst.

    Congrats on a cool looking bass are those Joe Barden pups?
     
  6. Nice, that thing looks like it will kick b*#t
    :)
     
  7. No, it's a custom wound pickup. The same model ended up in the Reverend Meshell Ndegeocello bass.
     
  8. Looks Good! Out of curiosity, where's it made?
     
  9. It doesn't matter to me, and doesn't say on the headstock.

  14. Yep, this is the latest revision.

    Mazareth - It's a little neck heavy, as you would expect from an SG bass. But nothing crazy.
     
  15. Mike Watt SHOULD be ordained.

    Niiiiiiice score.

    Congrats! I love Mike Watt.

    The only thing I don't like is the input jack. Why the huge plate? That's just me.
