    hello ppls, know of any good 32" scale basses (any price)?
    -maybe 31.5" but anything lower's to small for me-

    I don't have any pictures handy, but:

    Alembic (will make basically any scale, but Spoilers are fairly common and 32")

    Mouradian (same 33" and a lil bit as a Ric, but very rare)

    Gibson Explorer ("real ones" from the 80's were 32")

    The Fender Urge bass - the "Stu Hamm" bass James mentioned - only the 1st version, the Urge II is 34."

    These are the ones I've owned. None are cheap though, I believe the Explorer is currently the cheapest on the used market unless you happen on a mint collector's item.

    Kubicki Ex Factor's are 32". Also Yamaha Motion B are 32" but hard to find. Also Fender made a Squier P bass that was 32" that were MIJ. They come up on E-Bay once in a while.

    I would jump on that Aria Pro CSB 300! I had a 380 (very similar same but with black poly finish and gotoh style tuners) for a while, and it sounded great. They are really well made Japanese instruments, with a very heavy bridge, and a very good sounding pickpup.

    The attention to detail is really sharp, they even have threaded inserts for the pickup height screws! I really liked the SG'ish visuals, and if it had had a mid or neck pickup I totally would have kept it, but I'm a bit picky about that.

    i'm presently building two basses both of which are 32" scale. a few firms are making them from 34" boards (as i am). i believe Ibanez uses a 34" board cut off for their 32" (32.092) and for the 30" (30.3" but actually 30.291") scale even though they usually intonate closer to 30.4" (added the string width to the scale of course)
