    A short/med scale carbon fiber neck bass that isn't headless?

    I really love the Modulus, Peavy G Bass style carbon necks...BUT, full scales just aren't comfortable enough for me to play constantly, so it'd be a big investment for minimal return if I was to buy a 34" Modulus for example. Was there ever any shorter scale basses made with carbon necks that weren't the headless Status basses?

    I know of Zon, Gould, Peavy, Status, Modulus... what other brands should I look at and do any of these make a short scale model?

    You could make one using one of the following Moses necks?

    MB-19: 19 fret, 30″ scale 4-st fretted for Fender Mustang, Bullet, Bronco, Music Master
    MJ-144SH: 32” Stu Hamm 4-st fretted
    MJ-244SH: 32” Stu Hamm 4-st fretless

    Status would probably make one for you, but it would be pricey.

  5. Not exactly Carbon Fiber, but Kubicki Factors are 32" scale and have necks made from laminated 1/16" wood and from what I've heard *never move*. Another possibility to put on the list...

    That ones got a funny headstock, kinda like it but it's kinda weird haha! Thanks though and thanks everyone for replies. Maybe capo is the only way to go unless I want something really out there or custom.
