4 String Basses w/ 35" scale necks.

  1. Hey everyone - long time listener, first time poster. Love the show !

    Been playing 5 string basses for 12 yeas, and I want to make the jump back to a 4 string.

    I'm looking for a 4 string bass that features a 35" scale neck. I'm familiar with the Peavey Cirrus, and ESP has a bunch of pointy metal basses with that kind of scale - but I'm looking for something in a more classic sense - P/J style bodies, or Stingray styled.

    Active or passive electronics - either one.

    I play music that uses low tunings, but we're not quite a metal band so the less pointy, the better hahhaa !

    Cheers !

    Alien Audio out of Nashville offers a nice selection of 35" 4 strings. Chopper Anderson's double nordstrand p pickup configuration might be perfect for your needs.

  3. Thanks Cabcreaser ! I'll look them up.


    I'm also interested in replacement necks with that scale. J/P bass neck would be idea. I have a project Squire bass I'd like to screw around with.

    There's a really nice mod'd Peavey Millennium 4 (35" according to the manual) in the classifieds for low dough. IIRC, it's now loaded w/ SD pickups in a passive configuration. Wish it were a five banger but you know how that goes.

    Sorry to sound like a shill but I felt like it met your requirements to a "T".

    Although discontinued, Ibanez 4-string BTB basses have a 35" scale length.
