    Great News.........I would take the Burgundy but I would prefer it with a Maple FB. It's bye bye to the Stingray Dropped Copper Special which I was looking to buy, and hello to the short scale Passive Stingray.

    Correct, as the OP of that thread quietly and rightfully reminded us just a handful of minutes ago
    on the other thread:
    Short scale Stingray!
  9. Pre EB Stingray owner here. At $800 maybe. $2K I'll pass.

    Between the new Mustangs, the announced Gibson SS and now this, it's just a great time time to be a short scale player.

    If they made a shorty s.u.b. i'd be in. Just bedroom player so $2k way too much for me. Of the low priced long scales i played s.u.b. felt the best. Would give me more shorty options too.

    The new Nordstrand short scale bass looks pretty interesting for anyone that doesn’t want to shell out $2k. They’re supposed to be around $750.

    Canada, Eh!
    It's excellent! :thumbsup:
    I have had a short-scale "Stingray" for the past five years now. ("Mikro" scale, actually)
    It's my favorite platform for tapewounds at the moment... :)

    I wonder if it means there’s a line of short scale strings coming from them too?

    Damn, I kinda want one of these now. I’d prefer if it were an HH, but still.

    It looks like it didn't eat its vegetables and never grew up.

    Me like it!!

    the shorter scale will make the G string fuller with more bass

  20. Would love to have one. Too bad it’s such a limited run.
