    I think that this is primarily boutique builder territory. Landing and Stambaugh are known for these. A fellow also had a six-string shorty from a luthier going by "Watson", but I'm sure that any of the custom builders would prolly do it.

    Though, come to think of it, within the last few weeks someone claimed to have purchased a used LTD shorty 5. He never confirmed the actual scale length though.

    I've got a Birdsong 5 string. See avatar. Selling it actually. Not because I don't like it. Just having back and shoulder issues. It's one of the best basses I've owned.
