    She's a beauty! I love the idea of a short scale multi-scale. Makes too much sense.

    Multiscale? Is this due to the fanned frets?

    All fanned frets are multi scale.

    Yeah, and I've been looking for one forever! It seems all the multi scale (fanned fret) basses I've found, start at 37" or 35", which is too much for my carpal tunnel to handle.
