    My bass-ment
    Yup, I thinking of maybe getting myself yet another bass and it has to be a cheap one (so don't tell me about what I'd get if I save more, etc). I'm thinking 'bout getting either a cheap 6er (an SX Jazz) or a cool vintage style short scale 4 string... still have to make up my mind.

    Anyways, tell me about cool short scale vintage style bass under 500$, or better, under 300$, that are worth it to try out.

    Squier Mikey Way Mustang? There's a demo on of him playing, it sounds really cool. It's got a humbucker, though.

    I'd vote for a Dano Longhorn too. It's funky little cheapo that sounds and play great.
