    Yes it is tuned low B to high C. Tension is great (for me) on bridge but can be made even tighter by going through body (which can be done per string).

    How's the B string at 32"? How's the balance? Do you have any soundclips?
    I had a 33" singlecut Stambaugh 6, and it was truly amazing in every way.

    The B string is great - you can also run it through body if you needed more tension (all the strings have this ability) but I've not needed it personally. The original owner said this bass is actually 33" scale. All the saddles are positioned about 32.4" - 32.7". It balances perfectly on a strap. Absolutely zero neck dive and it is incredibly light. Beautiful in every way too ;-)

    No soundclips but could try and record some over the next day or so if needed.

    Quick and dirty recording (pardon the occasional flub). All settings are flat on the bass. Recorded direct into an Apogee Quartet and into a MacBook Pro:

    Nice playing.

    Re. the scale length, you can tell for sure by carefully measuring from the nut to the center of the 12th fret. That will be exactly half of the scale length. If you get 16", it's a 32" scale. 16.5", 33" scale.

    Cheers man. Yep, it's definitely 32" scale.

    Cool. Figured it probably was; intonation adjustments typically result in the nut-to-saddle length being longer than the nominal scale length, not shorter, so when I saw the measurements you quoted I figured it was likely a 32" scale, maybe something odd a little longer, but not 33".

    In any case, nut-to-12th fret is the most reliable way to check.
