    They are mass producing the SWB-1 Standard. http://www.shortscalebass.co.uk/swb-1-standard/

    Is anyone following this? Has anyone ordered? What do you think?

    I'm half tempted, especially with the price tag under $1000 for the bass and a flight case.
  2. Watching the demo video, at about 6:30 currently. To me, it has a bit less low end that I wound prefer.

    I agree, could use bit more low end. OTher than that, sound pretty solid

    There was one on eBay. Looks pretty cool, I'd like to try it out.

    I e-mailed him some questions about those some time ago because I was interested. No response whatsoever. That didn't encourage me to order one.

    Yeah... I think those were pre-orders through the company that's building them. The first run sold out, I think they are doing a 2nd production run.

    I'm not sure Scott is directly involved in the build - other than the specs... I did see pictures on Facebook from the factory that is doing the build. There video from the factory on this page: Short Scale Bass

    Thats a sick little short scale. I would love something like that loaded with Darkstars.

    Scott will be pretty busy just now as he's gigging with both Big Country and The Animals & Friends most of this year.
