I just got my new Rob allen Mouse 30 from Bass NW yesterday. So far I love this little bass. It has the biggest, deepest, upright like tone I have ever heard from an electric bass and it is only a 30" scale. I didn't think I would like the short scale but so far it hasn't bothered me. I played along with some Jamey Aebersold tracks and I didn't seem to have too much trouble with intonation. Bottom line: this is the most unique and definitely one of the best sounding basses I have owned. (there have been many)..I'll write a better review when the honeymoon phase is over. But my first impressions are very good. No pic no Mouse so here it is.
