If G&L built a short scale, what would be your dream pickup/controls configuration?

    Title says it all. Any thoughts out there?

    Jazz style neck, PJ, with EQ, passive pups, something affordable.

    Short scale ASAT.
  4. 2 MFD humbuckers. That'll give it plenty of low end that may be absent in some short-scales. Not sure about controls, but there should be passive mode.

    1.Passive split J's; VVT
    2.P + split J; VVT
    3.Add an active/passive system with a passive tone to either of the above

    I find that the low end is present with the short scales, but it isn't as focused. An MFD definitely would tighten things up.

    Yeah, definitely a Fallout! A better-looking-than-a-Mustang Mustang. The perfect shorty body. :bassist:

    Probably needs a tinted neck though.

    That would be cool.
  13. Fallout would be ooook.... but i want a higher end 2 pickup short scale... GIMME A SHORT SCALE SC2 PLEASEEEE!

  14. I would love this see something like this:hyper:
  15. ASAT or Wunkay
  16. About eletronics: it would amazing if they put all the crazy L-2000 switching in a short scale. There's nothing even remotely close to that on the market nowadays...

    Yep. The L series electronics package is what makes G&L unique, imho.

    I could definitely get with that. And you're right, a feature-filled short scale model would be unique and stand alone in the marketplace.
