    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.

    It’s very easy for those of us without weight or size restrictions to scoff at it, but I’m sure the threat is real for those who have issues. I’m 51 and I still lug around 100lb loads of building materials all day, so a 20 lb bass is a dream to me. It wont always be this way.

    First, whack the driver, then off the passengers. I want everyone in the car whacked off.

    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.

    I’m planning to stick with 4-strings for the time being. My hands haven’t been the same since having carpal tunnel surgery last year.
    Really hoping this G&L thing works out for me.

    I used to be strong like Ox, but at 54, I can sleep the wrong way and not be able to walk in the morning… Not sure what happened in just a few short years.

    Don’t look now, but that rolling up the pants cuff thing has made a comeback.

    It happened fast to me. Late 50’s all was awesome and then started to loose speed and strength a little bit. Never hurt my back and can still lift but 3 hours with 10 lbs. on my neck makes me whine like a little girl.    Empress is the cure!

    So let’s get this party started. I had a Mustang back when they were new. Liked the idea of the size when I was 16 but went back to my P because of the tone. Did anyone figure out how to get real bass tone from less than a 34″ scale length?

    Could just be the electronics, but this sounds pretty legit to me

    Their market is mainly guys for whom guitar is their primary instrument and who sit to record at home or play sit down gigs.  I’d say this is a fairly large market these days.  Slap a set of stiffer feeling flat wounds on a Fallout and it probably pretty effective for all of this.

    I’ve played 34″ and 35″ scale basses for so long  I wouldn’t be prompted to buy a 30″ scale unless I had a full time sit down gig.

    Surely one day my epitaph will read; "Don't mind him. He's just the bassist".

    I played a 30″ Jaguar bass with flats and aftermarket pups yesterday.  First time in probably 20 years.  Such a cute little thing and the tone wasn’t bad. Way too short to play on a gig without tons of practice so, NO.
