The Official Short Scale Bass Club -- Part 4

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by smperry, Mar 25, 2013.

  1. I wanted to get back to a shorty again, and this Mustang PJ filled the bill.

  2. Well, super work. I tried to refin a poly telecaster guitar about 6-7 years ago. Didn’t go too well and haven’t tried again since!

    Yup, the body and finish is solid, even the headstock scroll is still intact with no cracks (altho it does have a few dings as expected of an instrument that's pushing past 60 years old). Only thing needed are new pickups and a pot knob.

    Absolutely no shade intended at all, but do you keep buying and selling Mustangs and SG basses over and over again? Heh. I'm sure I see you post a new purchase of one of those two on a regular basis.

  6. Not to many of these on here, didn't know much about them myself but it's been a fun bass to go with my main bass, my Musicmaster.

    Gretsch G2220 Electromatic, got it at GC when I traded in the Allen Woody bass. This cranberry red is not much to my liking but still the other choices were black and "sunburst", no. And why do they call that brown to black sunburst? Never saw a sunrise like that.

    Painted the pickguard white, added white speed knobs and the white stripes. Not sure why the stripes look yellow ish on here but they're white.

    That's a nice looking bass! I haven't seen one before. The racing stripe will inspire fast playing for sure :bassist:

    Thanks! Its not that new though... I have probably 50-60 gigs on it so far :bassist: The short scale Gretsch's are underrated IMO.

  11. No, this pic was just shot the other day with the Fender / Hartke. [​IMG]

    The lighting in the room was better than some pics I shot a day, or two before that, so I reshot them. Also in this brighter set of pics, I repositioned the bass more centered, than to the left of the amp.

    I had no idea Tal could sing as well as that. which, although she should not give up her day job, is still better than I could ever do.

    I love the look. However, it seems expensive for what it is. I have the Hi Flyer, and granted, is basswood with a cheap bridge, but basically the same instrument. It's got some neck-dive and quite thick at the nut, so not the easiest to play of the short scales. I don't know how the P-90s on the Hi-Flyer compare to "M-90"s tone-wise, but this looks too much like what I already have at twice the price. IMG_0639.

  19. Count me in! Squier Jaguar VM SS. My 1st owned bass, purchased almost 2 years ago. (I played a couple of borrowed basses way back in high school 30+ years ago) Next up will be the Les Paul Jr. DC they showed at NAMM this year, when they come out! Dave 003.JPG

    Speaking of a nice Harmony H22 sighting here is Jennifer Condos playing one with the Molly Miller Trio.
