Welcome "Bassplayer315" ! You are Official Short Scale Bass Club member number 508 .
I understand and am having a lot of fun with mine!
NBD. I can't resist old worn out instruments that need a good home and some TLC. So here's my 1976 Musicmaster. All original, except for the input jack that was drilled out on the bottom of the bass. Can I be a member of the Short Scale Club?
Welcome "StudioGC" ! You are Official Short Scale Bass Club member number 509 .
Very cool. Here's my tele bass. I've since parted it out, but I should have saved the body and put a short scale neck on it. I just didn't know how great A SS could be back then! Looking forward to seeing you progress.
Hey, Can I get a number also?
Welcome "Jon Clegg" ! You are Official Short Scale Bass Club member number 510 .
Thank you, Sir!
I used to have a musicmaster, so wish i still had that bass especially seeing how the price has shot up over the years, funny to think they were originally intended as a low cost alternative to the P and Jazz basses, great basses none the less
My Squier Jaguar SS with aftermarket gold bridge, is a great bass
What a beautiful bass!!
What is on the neck, halfway down, in the first picture?
Thank you, I absolutely love this bass, I think you are seeing an optical illusion. Maybe I missed what you are looking at
You mean the strap that holds it on the stand?
Just saw this this morning on my FaceBook feed. New short scale bass from D Lakin. Not much else except some Korean parts and street price around $600.
In your first pic, there are two black things, on either side of the neck halfway up. Is it part of your bass stand?
At first look I thought it was part of your bass. I see now that it might be a strap or part of a stand. I'm just a curious guy
It's actually the tuners on the headstock.
Ah I see it now. My eyes played tricks on me!
It really is a beautiful bass. Enjoy!
Unfortunately I have to sell my awesome short scale (31") Birdsong Hy5 bass. It is a real work of art:

I've recently acquired a new short scale. It started life a couple of months ago as a second hand Greg Bennett Corsair Short Scale (the 30" version) and I've turned it into my travel/camping bass.
Here's the build thread
And here's the finished project
Oh also figured I'd post this here for anyone else who plays short scales is curious
