baritone bass?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by jimmy ray, Jan 8, 2003.


  1. Does anyone here know of a baritone bass, like a 5, but without the G on it? I love the low end of the 5, and when playing them, but I dont like the extra wide necks etc. And if buying one is not an option, how hard would it be to build one? would all the normal p-up's & bridges work on it? also, would the neck have to be 34" or 35"?
    thanks for your help

    You mean a BEAD 4 string. Easy mod. Takes 5 minutes, and a new setup.

    Do a search in Setup. I've done it to both 34 and 35 scale basses, and I believe Schecter even makes one (Scorpion Bass, I believe.)

    I've got on in my stable now, and I've got a custom one coming in a few months.
