    moses graphite could probably do a custom one for you, but it'll be pricey...

    Actually, the prices quoted to me by Steve Mosher at Moses last week were very reasonable. They do 32.125" scale, and probably others. Drop them a line!

    Moses Graphite seemed rather expensive. A while back I was looking for a 6 string fretless neck, it would have cost me ~$500 or so to get one.

    I was quoted just over $320 plus S&H for a 32" scale headless MM neck...

    I can get a Danelectro Longhorn neck (30" scale) for about $100. Or I know a Luthier that could make one for you (I'd have to check on the price.

    also... You might be able to get a Bronco neck from Fender, Hamer also makes a 30 1/2" scale bass (I saw one on Ebay for like $150). I actually picked up a Music Master (30") neck from Mars for $1.
