    LOL and I'm wanting to pay out the nose to ensure all I get is 100 pure plain maple. But I like the plain wood look, like a table. I'd do hickory, if it looked decent, since it'd never die.
     
  2. Man the women in the office are man bashing today, I hope their husband's dry-gulch them next time lol
    Ouch!!! Plus now it is a cooler outside so they have stopped rocking the mini skirts so now they are boring and annoying whiners, gonna be a long winter
    Oh boohoo he didn't return my text fast enough, I think I will drive my Acura back home to my $500,000 home, work out in my home gym, then go in my theatre room, and just put on something sad and have a good cry

    I dig plain wood in the extreme, unfinished. If it has to be finished why are we even using wood? Aluminum or graphite are much more stable. Raw wood is a feel thing for me. It just sucks its so damn expensive.
     
  4. I have though of going full unfinished like a rat motorcycle, but think my acid sweat and dust and dirt would probably stop my left hand in place lol, like a fat kid with too short a pair of shorts on stopped short halfway down the slide

    So many cool short scale basses out their and I am not a fan of the length unfortunately.
     
  6. I know it drives me nuts, I wish they would at least switch from 30 to 32 inch for short scales.

    Yea I don't care about the wood really, it' just an aethestics thing, I want a all maple bass so it looks the same all over, with a nice yellow tint, and it's doesn't get beat up as a fretboard so it'd be a good body I reckon.

    Just found some bass VI finger style demo's they are by a chubby man, so if he can finger style surely I can. Saw Jack Bruce with one too, man that dude must be like 4 foot tall, he looked dwarfed by the 30 scale bass.

    Squier has several 32" scale, as do others, 30-34-35 is just the most common.

    The new tele and cabrita (whore bass), and others are 32"
     
  9. Man is it lame that I daydream at work about going home and rubbing tru oil on my bass neck and a stupid craft shop letter M and to see what they look like after another 24 hours
     
  10. Yeah, I hope it catches on more, I played a nice Matsumoku Aria in 32 inch and didn't feel as awkward as a 30 inch scale to me, tension on the strings felt good and all.

    Tell me about it. At 6'5" I don't think I'm even allowed to touch them.

    6'1" myself, got two 30.5" scale basses, both feel fine, I can't tell what the problem with them comes from.

    I used to play a P bass forever so I love that giant neck too. The only thing I'd slight a SS bass for is a lack of depth, but the EB-0 with the artec pickup has way more depth and feel than my old full scales.
     
  18. Yeah I can't tell if I should just go straight tru oil when I eventually get a body, or color or stain it first, I keep going back and forth, like I do love Warwick colored oil finishes, but if I got a natural color, then it looks kind of common to me, like so many natural poly guitars out there, and lots of solid colored guitars out there. Just to try something a little less common I suppose, a lot easier to mess up though If I just slapp tru oil on and say yep done, as I am learning as I go, guess I will swing by home depot and get some new wood and some stain or dye to try out, lol
     
  19. I like their punch, they just feel funny to me in the lower register, which shouldn't because I play guitar, but short scale guitars feel that way to me too, probably a muscle memory thing.
