Right now I'm looking on ebay at a couple of short scale basses just to have at home and mess around with. My main bass right now is a musicman SUB 4 fretless and I also have a Schecter CV-4, An acoustic electric Michael Kelly Dragonfly and a "Titan"(my first bass, which had surprisingly good sound for a $40 bass). I have very small hands and fingers - so while I am used to the long scale, it is still a struggle to stretch sometimes. Basically I am looking at a good solid low-cost short scale that still has some punch to it. The two I am looking at are: A SX Vintage series: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&item=320298488727 A Epiphone EB0: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&item=300258629086 They will both probably be in the range of $150 - $180 with S&H included. I was just hoping that maybe sometone could give me some advice as to which of the two I should pick and if anyone had any other suggestions. Thanks!
