I don't get it. What is a small lady supposed to do when she wants to buy a fairly decent bass but there is barely any choice out there? It seems to me you either have to pay stupid money for a quality short scale or put up with a Squier Bronco or something. Would it make sense if Squier (for example) shrunk the good old Jazz and Precision basses to short scale? Do you think they'd sell? Reason I am posting this is because my girlfriend enjoys playing but my bass is way too difficult for her to play. She is very small. I looked around and there's pretty much nothing but crap out there. She doesn't want to spend a fortune, but something better than a Bronco would be good. Besides, it's just a rubbish name, isn't it! "Bronco"? ***? Fender -- make a tiny Jazz! I command you!
