And it’s always sold out big brother
I’ve got to give it some love first as I need to clean it up and restring it, but I’ve got this Squier Bronco Bass from ages ago which cost the princely sum of 3 pints. Yet to play it but looking forward to it -
Nice, very clean looking. A lot of times the proportions are a little wierd looking on ss.
Definitely! Look at the headstock. It’s nearly as big as half the fretboard! Or at least, it looks like it should. Odd things aren’t they
I have an Ibanez Talman TMB30 short scale that is fantastic. I swapped out the stock pickups with a set of Dimarzio Area PJ pickups and still have under $350 (US) in it.
I really like this one, reminds me somewhat of the Gibson Grabber.
it’s a 32 or 34" so not really a short scale, and starting at $2100
I have a Gretsch G2220 Jet.
It’s inexpensive, basic bass, good looking, and solidly built with very good craftmanship. Look it up. All good reviews
I considered a short scale bass when I was shopping, because I’m short and have small fingers, but once I started playing, I also discovered I have a hard time playing too close to my body, so it’s kind of a mixed bag.
I think most people go through a “my hands are too small! I need a shortie!” phase when in reality it’s a myth. Most people that stick with it do fine on a long scale.
i play both. curious to see which one will become the number one. my full scale bongo is a much better bass, but I have a feeling I will wind up grabbing the ss stingray, it’s just much easier to play for me.
very les pauly
I own a Squier modified short scale bass. It’s a PJ bass configuration. I find that the J pickup is rather weak. But, with both pickups I enjoy the tone. Right now, I’m looking into the Squier Mustang bass. The Gretsch G2220 Short scale is also a nice bass worth looking into.
@shulmeal54 I replaced the PJ pickups in my Ibanez short scale with a set of Dimarzio DP126 pickups and I really like them.
