    i've read all the posts about the new shorties being planned by warmoth for a few months now but has anyone heard when these will be available? im waiting for these parts to pop up on the warmoth site to place my order.

    I'm also interested in the Warmoth shortscales and called them a couple of weeks ago and was told they won't be available until mid 2010.

    Until then I'll make do with my P and J shortscale experimentals using Mustang RI and Bronco necks.

    thats a bummer. i saw a twitter post of theirs from october that said short scales were coming soon. my wishful thinking told me soon meant within a few months. i already had my dream short scale J worked out and ready to order!

    just saw the second part of your post.. i wish i could do some short scale experiments but being a lefty really limits my options for basses let alone short scale basses which is why i am so excited for the warmoth ones

    I'm anxiously awaiting them, too! Mid 2010 is painful, especially when they've already posted pix of them! :(

    Sorry guys, I don't have an official release date. All the design and testing is done. I assembled the prototypes and they're pretty sweet.

    If you're really interested, email sales@warmoth.com and let them know you're ready to buy. The sales/web side of the house needs to get their part done. (And that includes me too....)

    hey wyliee i sent them an email a few days ago and expressed an interest in buying or possibly preordering something but got a response just telling me to keep watching the website for updates. but it seems a lot of people are pretty keen to get onto these. i know i had the cash ready to order!

    I did the same a while ago and got the same polite email response. I also would pull the trigger tomorrow if given the chance!

    Woot Woot!

    My next purchase is a Squier Bronco and when I'll need a high end bass I'll seek warmoth. Especially if the Short scale necks are thin! If they aren't, well, I'll give them a shot anyways.

    Are these the 32" scales I was hearing about? If so its medium scale.

    I really liked the look of the 32" Jazz on the link above. If you offer those (or 5 string 32" scales), I'd be first in the queue!
