My first short scale built.
Groovy. What are the specs?
The spec is:
Stabilized maple/blood wood/Stabilised maple 3 pcs neck.
Unknown pick ups.
This is my first build so there are many mistakes and recovered points.
I will be remaking similar bass again.
My second short scale bass built.
This is a kind of experiment with 28" super short scale.
Are you building these basses for children,playability,tone,or are you a midget ?
I have built a few short scaled basses also ,my reason was for tuning in 5[SUP]ths[/SUP]
damn kids and their short scaled basses
I am a guitarist so short scale is more comfortable and easier to play than 34". There are not many 30" in the market. These are reason why I am making 30".
Just experiment to see what playable shortest scale would be. 28" is between guitar and 30". That's why.
Obviously 4th string is not usable. Can be used as piccolo bass.
Are you making 5th interval tuning Bass? I can not handle it. Are you a Cello player?
Judging by your username, I'd say you put too many strings on those.
But they look quite nice.
I'm building a 32" scale bass soon...but I guess that's really just medium scale.
I built 31" and am planning 34" 6 string.
This is 31" scale.
The body is not down sized since the rear pickup mount hardware require a standard size pickguard.
Yes,yes I am
Another 30" I made.
Amber stain was little too much.
Oh my God, I want this so bad! What a beautiful, beautiful instrument!
My new 30" build.
Gluing a mahogany piece on the wing.
A short scale Stingray is genius!
I'm in the planning phases for for my first build (decent woodworking experience, but no instruments), and I really want to build a short scale. I'm having trouble understanding how to plan out the neck and fretboard. Did you have a "go-by" for the short scale neck, or did you figure it out another way?
I am not using any special way. First, I decide the scale then automatically the nut, the 12F and the Bridge position will be set. Then just design the body and the head. That's it.
To me most difficult point is the neck angle to be matched with the bridge saddle.
