    What 32" scale (not 30"or 28.5") basses do you people know about? Both electric and acoustic?

    I don't believe there are any now. You may be able to find a used Warwick rockbass somewhere but you'll need to go custom build beyond that. Ibanez just released a 33".

    Yes.
     
  5. I have a 32" scale Cliff Bordwell 7 string. It's a very good low B, but not cheap. Curt Mangan makes me some shortened B, E, and A strings for that bass.

    Ha ha ha. I was looking more into the cheap, or at least more affordable route.

    Go to a Sam Ash they always have 3 or 4 cheap 5 stringers laying around.

    I know that Ibanez used to make a 5-string 32" scale bass in their AEB acoustic series, but by the time that I was seriously thinking about getting one,... they stopped making them.
