    Is this a misprint? My son had a 27" scale bass and I had to tune it up a whole step to keep a 105 from floppin out of the nut.

    i love the look of that bass. i know tht is not a great quality bass and not the best design to be played, but if i played in a punk bund i'd buy one for sure!
     
  4. must be a misprint...i saw onw of the dudes from the red elvises play one, and didn't seem to be a short scale at all.

    i really like the way it looks. but we all thats not all that matters. I would be concerned with balance. I would guess that, like many other yamahas I have played, the playability and sound of it would be on par with something a little more expensive. I would also guess that this thing would neck dive, depending on where the back strap button is located. I think it would look better without a pickguard, but I like the sparkle paint job. It's different, but I defenitly wouldnt ever buy one without playing it first, while looking in a mirror.
     
  6. In the photo it looks like the bottom strap pin is mounted off center, which is an attempt to compensate for a heavy neck. In my experience, it doesn't work very well.

    I think Yamaha's discontinued this one and the stores are blowing out remaining stock.
