    Anybody have any experience with a Fender MIM Stu Hamm 32" scale bass? I'm looking for a medium scale bass that's a little easier on my wrist, but could deliver J-type tone (willing to swap pickups). Also - the MIA Hamm's are alder. Any idea what the MIM's are made of?

    IIRC there was a TB'er who bought one just to satisfy his want for a short scale jazz bass...perhaps he will chime in!

    www.stuarthamm.net doesn't seem to be working now, but on the "basses" page you can read some basic specs for it!

    Thanks Chris. Stu's website is working today. I was able to find that the MIM version of the bass is poplar - not alder. That pretty much tells me to look elsewhere. Thanks for the heads up on the website.

    Just sent you a PM regarding the Stu Hamm and a couple other medium scales I've got.

    chris - when was it down?

    seems to be working right now - or are you referring to the forum? in which case those were down for a bit. I really gotta work on that, but I've been stupid busy lately

    I'm not sure, I'm guessing about 24 hours ago...so August 23rd, 15:00 hours or so! I checked this morning though and the site is working again! :)
     
  7. I have 2 USA Urge I basses. Medium scale aside, I got mine because I like the P and J combinations and I find they play better than most MIA Fender basses that I have seen. The shorter reach is nice, along with the overall reduction in weight.
