    I am looking at a new bass, under $1000 would be ideal. I have been looking for a short scale for awhile, something light weight and well balanced. I am currently considering either an Epiphone Allen Woody (not crazy about the gold, but that is another story) a Waterstone Indra, an Ibanez ARTB100, or possibly a Hofner Contemporary, probably the Violin bass because I could get a hardshell case for it...

    Anyways, out of those, any thoughts? They are all lightweight, shortscale basses, and with the exception of the Ibanez I believe they are all semi-hollow.

    I've heard okay things about the Eastwood Classic 4, and Eastwood Airline Map basses.

    As far as shorties go, I've only got experience with the Mustang. Loved it, but sadly let it go as I wanted to kick the tires on a P.

    I knew I was forgetting something, and that would be the Eastwood Classic 4. I have thought about the Mustang, I dig the sound but not the price + price of case.

    How heavy was your Mustang? Any neck dive?
