    near detroit...uh
    I am looking for a 3/4 scale electric bass for a munchkin (7 year old) and I dont have the foggiest idea where I would look?
    I'd give him my old peavy 4 string but he's too small still
    I need a mini.
    and not a "piece o crap" either
    suggestions welcome
    PM me or post here

    If you search here on the term "short scale", you'll get a lot of good info. I see decent deals on shortscale basses on Ebay all the time. (Crap deals too, but that's the market.) For a kid, the basic Fender Musicmaster or Epiphone SG is probably an OK start.
  3. Fender makes the P Bass Jr., which has a 29 3/5" scale length, but I'm not too crazy about the $399 sale price at MF. Also, you can get the Squier Bullet Bass for about $150. Other than that, there's not really a lot out there that's not either crap or really expensive.

    Sorry, bro :meh:
