    image.jpg image.jpg 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?

    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.

    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

    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 :cool:

    It's actually the tuners on the headstock.

    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
