38" ??

  1. Looks like a typo to me. From the picture, I'd be guessing they might have meant 28" scale.

    But who knows. 38" scale would have an amazing tone, but be nasty to play.

    hmmm...well, i think the low b on the dingwall basses is close to that, but gawd...the e _might_ sound ok but it seems like it would put a lot of tension on the neck...your a, d, and g strings would sound like twangy ass...just my opinion...i guess you could screw around with string guages and get it right, but...at any rate, that bass really doesn't appear to have such a large scale
