    Mike Lull Customs P430 - Custom 30” scale

    Serek basses - Custom can do 32” or 30” Scale on most models.

    Also the Reverend Dub King is 30” Scale.

    Thanks OP for accumulating this list.

  4. To best of my knowledge les Paul basses with the exception of the 69-71 and 71 -79 triumph are long scale. I have 72 triumph n did a lot of research trying to find other led Paul short scales n have had no luck.

    What a great list!!!
    There's also the Eko Viola bass. Made in Italy. I believe there might have been a Vox branded version of it (also made by Eko). Mine measures right at about 30 inches. This is a mid-60's version. Eko Viola (with B-15).jpg

    Just to fill-in a couple of blanks on your list...
    My Gibson Memphis ES bass measures 30.5 inches.
    My Gibson SG basses measure at 30.75 inches.
    (these depend a little on the bridge adjustment)

    Have pictures as soon as he completes it. It's going to be a "S" model. 30" scale. With a flamed spalted maple top. Light weight. I'll post some pictures as soon as it arrives. Summer 2019. My bad.
