    Now, they just need to make’em backwards for guys like Bonin and myself.

    I’ve always wanted to try a short scale… but also afraid I’ll prefer them and have several basses to sell!

    I’m kinda torn on the short scales. My first bass was a Fender Musicmaster back in like ‘76-77.

    It’s a hard choice when I can get an SB-2 for the same price.

    Never wear loose clothing to the music store.

    That’s not what you said.

    I like their color schemes, but I’d rather stick to a 34” scale.

    No thank you to the flood of short scale bass that have come out.

    Agreed. I’m sure they’re more comfortable, but to whom? If a player has already overcome a larger bass and become proficient, then why bother? However, I also tend to do certain things the hard/ old-school way, just to keep myself in check.

    I can certainly see a dozen legitimate reasons for smaller basses, but I’m not feeling like they’re being crammed down our throats for those reasons. Seems more like marketing to me.

    However, the new “small” drums are another story entirely. I can speed around the skins like a motherfucker on this new kit! Cymbals are easily in reach and cheap to replace, and “lugging” your kit to the show is now a complete joy. The neighbors no longer complain about the noise from the basement, sticks last 38 years, emergency head repairs are done with Saran Wrap, and I just sold my Econoline 350 van and bought a Kia two-seater.

    I think they’re great, but yeah, for me it would be a L1k but on an SB/Kilo body.

    There certainly does seem to be a cult following… Old Slugworth would give his right arm to get his hands on one.

    I had a chance to try a US one with the racing stripe. I’ll preface that I’m not really into SS and this one didn’t change that. It really felt and sounded like an L1000 that was compressed in size. Similar tonal vibe anyway. A Trib version is a good decisi0n from a business perspective. People dig them these days I guess.

    The only reason I would even consider one is because of the light weight. The 10lb EBMM SR5 I sold to buy the JB was killing my neck and shoulder even during short sets.

    Empress is looking good for my next one.

    Have you checked out the new SR specials?

    I know they’re pricey, but the weights are quite reasonable.

    I believe I saw some SRS5’ers on Sweetwater around the 8.5/9lb range.

    Exactly. People also used to dig putting Vaseline in their hair and rolling up their pant legs to reveal their white socks.
