    In case anyone in the sub-short scale group missed my posts on other threads of two custom sub-short scale basses I'm considering, here are mock ups I made of them; a violin bass and a Rickenbacker guitar style as a bass. They're both going to have a thumbrest attached to the pickups.

    I never liked the rectangular control panel of the Hofner's so I eliminated it.

    I took the tailpiece/bridge and the pickguard look from Rickenbacker basses and applied them to a guitar style body.

    This is in addition to the Les Paul Express I converted to a 22" scale bass, and custom 22" scale Telecaster style bass I had made.

    I'd be all over that Rickenbacker if that was actually manufactured.
