Shortest neck???

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by WarPig, Jun 2, 2005.

  1. What is the shortest neck/body combo I can put together. I'm experimenting with some midi hardware in my home studio and I want to put my midi pickup on an undrilled body with the shortest neck I can find......

    Is a 21 fret neck as short as they come? How about overall nut to bridge length......how short can I compress this length?

    Any helpful suggestions would be greatly appreciated......dg

    I think scale length will be a major factor in the neck size. I believe these little 8 string basses that are doubled up have a small neck. I believe they're called "mandolins" but that's just a silly name for 8 string bass.
