Ever seen one ?
SX Ursa 2 JR MN ALDER LPB Short Scale w/Bag
Thank you ! I find playing jazz on my bronco is way easier than my full scale basses so i thought, why not find a short scale jazz?
SIRE Marcus Miller U5
Fender Japan made a short scale (29.5") Jazz Bass called the JB62SS.
Plenty of SX fans here.
I've got this Warmoth;
I have an SX 30” Jazz with some upgrades going up for sale soon if you’re looking for an inexpensive one.
As posted elsewhere: Fender Japan 1994 '62 Jazz Reissue, 32" scale. "Medium" rather than "short" but even so...
Just curious, how is playing “jazz music” on a specific bass easier?
A lot of standard jazz charts are in F or Bb. I personally find the reach on a shorty less fatiguing over the course of a night's rehearsal or gig. Plus I played an Epi Allen Woody which gave nice thumpies. Win-win.
But that's just me, one guy. YMMV.
when i started a short scale jazz thread, a couple folks recommended this one
J & D Bass guitar JB Mini BK Black | MUSIC STORE professional | en-OT
i emailed the store, and they ship to the u.s. and elsewhere.
I have this custom Public Peace 30" Jazz on order and should be receiving it by the end of July
I often wonder if walking bass would be easier on a shortie. I have yet to test this theory though.
There’s an atelier z in the classifieds right now iirc
I play a lot of very fast walking lines and it's loads easier on a shorty.
Think its worth it at that price point?
The bronco is a short scale squier bass, and the rest are full scale.
I asked about this subject recently in the Official Short Scale thread. I got some decent responses, though nothing powerfully satisfying. I'd really like a 30" Fender J, and the custom offerings from Maruszczyk seem to get me closest to the look I'd want. Here's the link, so you can see the replies in the following posts.
