    Is it like there are people at EBMM that are silently monitoring Talkbass? Never saw that coming.

    Interesting to see all of the electronics changes from a normal Stingray. Arguably a bigger change than the scale length.

    That's what I'M talkin' 'bout!!

    Good move to create this model. I'm very much a short scale lover. They'll sell very well.

    Can I have two? Fretted and fretless? :swoon: The perfect travel set.

    I hope they do, because I'd like to see this one stay for good. Right off the bat, it's more beautiful than a Mustang.

    'Bout time. But I'd prefer either the pickup be closer to the neck or an HH version.

    Heartening to see more builders consider shortscale to be a valid bass design.

    This is going to make a lot of people happy.

    Heartening to see more bassists not regarding short scale instruments as "beginners'" instruments.

    Me neither. And now I hate everybody.

    Have an American Performer Mustang out for delivery, today.

    I REALLY have to start selling all my basses, so I can start buying all new basses.

    Passive bass boost?

    Is that like the OMG mode on an L-1000 (L1K, Wunkay)???

    Ooooh...this is cool. Will probably be much pricier than American Performer Mustang, but if this has the build quality of the EBMM Specials it would, for me, be worth the extra cash.

    I'll guess $2,099 or so; same as the Specials.
    The new Fender (American made) Mustang guitars and basses are at same price point as full-scale basses/Teles/Strats, so I'm guessing EBMM's offerings will mirror the price point of their full-scale equivalent.

    I'm holding out hope that it being passive, we might get a break.

    That will most likely wind up being collectible
