Yeah, but still........
Also, in the pictures I've seen (haven't seen one in person) it looks like the B string bridge is slightly off the edge of the body. Is this an optical illusion?
The low-B bridge goes through the rounded edge of the body. But, it's still inside the body line, since the individual bridges were installed countersunk.
I can see where you both are coming from, to a point. My take is that they are only adding a half inch to the scale of a lot of other mass-produced 5-string basses (inch and a half for their own) versus a company like Dingwall who makes the G-string 34", and the B-string 37". That's more in-line with the whole multi-scale/fanned-fret concept which was inspired by grand pianos. I didn't do my due diligence on that, or else I wouldn't have purchased it in the first place. If I'm going to jump into the MS camp, I want there to be a noticeable difference. I did not get that with this bass.
This particular bass didn't work for me, but that doesn't mean it won't work, or be preferable, for others. I bought one, thinking I was getting something very comparable to a Dingwall, for a lower price. That's not what this is, and I want to make that clear to anyone considering it. It's not a bad bass at all, just not my cup of tea.
