I know 80s MIJ 32" Squier P's do, I have 2 of them.
So YOU are the one hogging them! I am now all about medium scale basses after I bought an Ibanez Mezzo and loved the play of the neck. I have a medium scale neck on order from Warmoth that I am going to try to adapt to one of my P basses. Make take some doing.
you'll need to move the bridge at the least
Too bad you didn't contact Brad Lowe from Lowe guitars. He makes direct replacement 32" necks for 7ender basses.
He often posts over at The Official Medium Scale Bass Club
Seems like a decent guy, maybe you should talk?
I've seen his posts. Nice looking stuff but a bit more than my budget.
Lovely! Whats the name of these? Squier JV or? I love my old Japan P and need a backup bass.. medium or short.
Man, that ain't right.... man. Those things are sweet!
I dont know if they have an official name but they are sometimes referred to by the first letter of their serial numbers. E.G., my white one is an "E" series and my black one is an "A" series. I think some were made with Fender logos on the headstock, so I would assume they are more expensive. You can probably get a Squier for $500-900 if you can find one.
I dont really know about the JVs.
Sounds good! Thanks
The bass is really nice, the G&L store set it up well and I won't have to change anything about the set up...yet.
Neck dive it does have with a 2" nylon strap... it slips down a little, not much but it dives. My 3" leather strap eliminates the dive all together and the bass stays right where I leave it. It weighs 8 1/2 lbs. so its comfortable. A cool thing about the upper horn not reaching the 12th fret is, compared to the SS Stingray, this does not give me a cramped feeling. The reach to the first fret feels like I'm playing one of my 32" scalers. It's very comfortable, and, it sounds just great. I've got a set of bright flats coming that I'm gonna put on it.
I seem to be adding a new short scale bass almost on a monthly basis these days (and may are shipping in sleeves in cardboard boxes these days). I'm curious as to whether there is a gig bag or case that gets the job done for 30"/32" scale basses (that isn't a full sized 34", of course). While some of my shorties will fit in a guitar case, my new Dano short-horn is too long. Anyone else have a solution for the same/similar issue? I'd appreciate any recommendations. Thanks.
check the measurements for the Gator guitar bags. they have a removable pad at the bottom that gives 1.5 or 2 inches of additional space. My EBMM Stingray short scale fits nicely with a small amount of extra space.
As @revroy said, the Gator G-PG pro guitar bag might work for you and they are on sale at Sweetwater right now for $129
Gator G-PG ELECTRIC ProGo Ultimate Gig Bag for Electric Guitar
All my short scale Basses fit in it fine with a little room to spare with the insert at the bottom removed. The inside measures 41 &1/2". You can prob fit a Bass with a length of 42" in it snug no problem
here's the EBMM StingRay in the Gator guitar bag
Love the collection. Is the J a short scale? MIJ maybe? BTW, I went to high school in Easthampton and used to hitchhike to Northampton with friends. Beautiful part of the state!
Fender Japan 32” scale. And yeah, it’s pretty here in Spring.
Well howdy looks like I made it in the short scale club.
Nordstrand Acinonyx, 30.75 inch scale, 6.81 pounds in its gig bag. Nordstrand-installed GHS Balanced Nickels at my request.
I’m in the Northampton area. Are you playing out when that resumes?
