I know that a 35" scale can considerably tighten a low B, but I do not really want a 35" scale. What makes a bass have a good low B? Is it the stiffness of the neck, the bridge, the electronics? I can't imagine the body makes that big of a difference, other than the neck/body joint. What makes it tight? I am going to take a stab that says a reinforced (or very stiff) neck may make a huge difference. What do you think?
