    I picked up an interesting little toy this weekend.  Introducing Kristy Lee’s little sister, Kady (short for Kadence), an Ibanez Mikro.  I bought it so that I could keep a bass at my desk but one that I’m not worried about and won’t take up much room.  I was surprised at how good this little short scaler sounds at volume through my full stack.  Short on scale != short on tone.

    Nice! My nephew has one of those. At least I think it’s a Mikro, it’s a SS Ibby PJ. Anyway for the price, those are spot on for quality and sound.

    Short scales are lots of fun. You can really rip on them.

    Yeah, my brain has a hard time remembering that it’s not a 6 string guitar and that those aren’t a set of 10’s on there 😀

    Nice snag, K!  How in the world did you get something so close in color, as the G&L?

    Just one of the stock colors that they come in.  It’s called Starlight Blue 🙂
