I've been looking into getting a short scale bass. The reason I'm looking into getting a short scale is because of the ergonomic benefits (which are especially important to me since I sustained a overuse injury in my left arm over a year ago). For the past few years I've been mainly playing DB as nothing I've been doing has really called for BG. Now that I'm getting back into BG I want something that will have a similar range to the DB. By that I mean I want a short scale five string with a high C. The only places I've really seen short scale 5 strings are: Birdsong Guitars and Fodera. A Birdsong Hy5 is at the upper limit of my price range and a Fodera is way out of my price range. Suggestions?
