Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by KrisWarrington, Jan 12, 2012.

  1. Short and medium scales have a club why not long scale? This thread is also for extra long scale.

    I play a Dingwall. 37" B, to 34" G string. Fanned frets.
  3. #2 if you want it. Feel free to post pictures of your LS/ELS basses. I'm also curious to what that looks like, i've never seen a multi-scale bass... is your bridge and nut sideways instead of straight?

    Not to be a celebration-defecator, but wouldn't 34 be "standard scale"?

    I have a custom peavey 5 string fretless, ibanez BTB 676 and LTD F-404, all of three have 35'' of scale, i will post pics tomorrow when i'll get home
  12. Do you have the F-404 model with the tribal inlays? I love that bass (I own it). A little harder to play then most my schecters.

    Exactly, I've bought it the year before they switched the inlays to simple dots. My first ''real'' bass, and i still friggin' love it! It needs some adjustments, but i'm sending it to my luthier soon.

    But yeah, it's a bit hard to play, mostly because of the shape of the neck, but it looks so badass! :bassist:
  14. I did a lot of re-adjustments on it. My biggest thing is im a bigger fan of HZs than the 40dcs. But your right the neck just makes it a "slower" playing instrument for me. I have a schecter devil tribal bass. It's also discontinued (been so since 2002) has pretty much the same tribal all up and down the fretboard (and is much lighter and a speed demon of a bass). I love that bass more. I rarely use my 404 anymore. I mainly keep it just to say I own one.

    Is that the one that was on CNJ Craig's a couple of weeks ago? If I had the cash I would have pounced. Beautiful bass.
  18. 35" scale Spector Euro 5LX on top of my Mesa Powerhouse 412 cab. It gives a good size comparison.
