    hi everyone:

    apart from the ashbory, is there are fretted bass that is good for teaching a young child to play bass?

  4. Actually, the Ashbory is freless and not very easy to play(just in case you were considering this). I would think any short scale would be good, maybe a Squier Bronco.

    initially i tried searching using "children bass" as the keywords but couldn't get anything useful. after christopher's recommendation, i tried "nomad bass" and got referred to a bunch of short scale basses.

    i would prefer a bass shorter than 30" scale.
    the nomad or even the samick corsair mcr looks really cool.

    i just can't find an online retailer who sells
    the samick corsair mcr.

    any idea?


    (i am avoiding the rubber band bass)

    I would personally go for the Essex short scale P-Bass. I'm toying with the idea of getting one for my 6 year old, he's not even interested in bass, but it sounds like a good excuse to sneak one in past the mommy.

    For $99, you probably won't find a better short scale. I doubt you'll find much that's shorter than 30" scale length.

    I bought my 5 yr old a new Fender Mustang. It fits him perfectly.
