Hi, I wrote an email to Adrian Maruszczyk regarding the idea cutting fret slots from a 30 inch layout on a 34 inch type neck in order to make a short scale bass with full fret access up to the 24th fret with out needing to make a more extreme cut out in the body. As far as I can measure, one could fit about 24-25 frets in 30 inch scale length on a 34 inch neck. Then one could take a standard 34 inch bass body and position the bridge closer to the nut in order to have half distance at the 12th fret. Would this idea work? Adrian does not think it would, but doesn’t care to give an explanation as to why it wouldn’t work. He started out by calling my idea bullsh#t, so I’m definitely not letting him build anything for my money. Pretty unprofessional attitude for a simple request. I’m a bit surprised by this, as I can imagine he has a lot of interaction with customers. His business seems to be going fine.
