    So it's done and I deliver it on Sunday. This may be the best playing one to date. I'm thinking I need a 30" scale bass.

    Pinstriper finally got the fake binding done! Gene originally used 'liquid paper' to paint it on himself when he was bored in the hotel room.

    Any of you switch between and short scale and 34" regularly? Thoughts?

    I can switch to the KALA U Bass at 20" with no problems.

    Wow, won't even make last place this year. I won't have money for strings until next week sometime and I still have to find a local pinstripe dude. before I can put the clear on. To be honest, having it over here made it a lot duller for me.

    It's a sidewinder but a knockoff. As a plus, it has four wire connections so I can split the pickup if I wish.
