Hi TB my new gf is a Bass Player, please pinch me I think I'm dreaming... She is a very short woman with small hands. Her current bass is a Hofner style beatle bass copy that is about 30" scale. Sounds meh (to me) and I want to get her another bass. She is into the idea and wants to expand from her roots (bluegrass) to more pop/rock/blues/modern country. I have an arsenal of basses all 34" and longer and have shyed away from short scale basses as I am comfortable with the longer scale (after 40 years of playing this year). So I desire some Talk Bass wisdom from short scale bass players. What do you play? What do you like? Our budget is $500 - $600 for now. The Kala SUB has already been considered but so far it seems a bit of a one trick pony, it makes very nice upright bass sounds good for bluegrass but I'm not hearing it as a good bass for pop rock covers. What short scale (28-30") bass is best for pop rock covers?
