    Do all 32" scale basses have a narrower heel width than 34" scale basses?
    String spacing on the fingerboard is my concern.

    My '83 Ibanez Roadstar II also has the 32" scale neck. You're the only other person I know who has one so I'm guessing they're pretty rare.

    Warwick's Rockbass Corvette Medium scales suppodely can swap necks with their short and long scale versions, so there's are not different. I don't know about their special order medium scales. You can also use a Brad Lowe Customs medium scale conversion neck. Mine is pretty amazing and he has lots of options.

    I bought one in black but the gold pickguard was a little too fancy pants for me so I sanded it off and painted the bottom black along with the top to make it a flat finish. I also replaced the knobs so that they matched the bridge barrels ( gold / brass ). Super fun to play, my only complaint is that there is some neck dive.

    That looks disgustingly cool, the matte finish really works on those basses. I got a solid leather strap for my Rivolta and it worked wonders on the neck dive.

    I'm glad to see a major player like Spector supporting the viability of a 32" scale 5-string. It makes me hopeful that my 5-string 32" scale conversion neck will be at least as successful as the 4-string version.

    ;)

  9. Without getting up on the soapbox (again) I will say one more time. PLEASE LEAVE THIS THREAD ALONE, unless you have a new 32" medium scale bass to report on. This is a reference thread, not a thread to discuss your favorite mods on your own medium scaler. Please use the Medium Scale Club, start your own thread, or use any other thread for your own purposes. When folks like me (after all, I started this thread) want to go back and do a quick scan to see what is new in medium scalers, I have to wade through tons of totally irrelevant posts. Please be fair and respectful and use the thread as it was intended.

  10. Negative, I have the Ibanez Mezzo string spacing is almost identical to my Fender Jazz.

  12. I know you are Mister Chakra Guy and all, apparently a cool buddha dude - but why in the world would you post this here, knowing full well you already posted it in the medium club?

    If you have a new medium scale bass you want to present, fine - feel free to post it here - otherwise, please keep your hardware postings in the "club".

    This thread is not designed for this.

    Respectfully submitted....

    Photos of hardware aren't what this thread is about. If you want to post a bass that can be seen and admired, then alright, post away...
