    What are some basses similiar to an Ibanez BTB or an F-bass that have the long upper horn? I'd love to see some pics too.

    I played a BTB last night and there was something I really liked about the balance of that upper horn being so long. It just felt right.....I've got a nice chunk of income tax $$ coming back so I'm just trying to find a way to spend it before I get it. :)

    Thanks!

    This To me is very important. I think its somewhat balance but mainly its the reach to the open position.

    But I sujest you view them the way I do. Not How Long But Relitive to what fret?

    Full size Fender Bodies Go to the Middle of the 12/13 Fret. With a Dunlop Strap lock on the strap sits right at the 12.

    That to me,Feels right.

    The strap button on this one is almost to the 10th fret! Beautiful bass and I bet it balances very nicely too.
