    I finally found a bass that my very small hands can handle. It's an acoustic Guild Junior Jumbo bass with only a 23.5" scale, (not a typo), and D'addario nylon core strings. I have always struggled with the full size 34" scale, missing notes, and a lot of fret buzz from sloppy technique. This works great for on the couch, is so easy to play, and plugged into an amp, sounds way bigger than it is...it looks pretty cool as well, I love this thang...cheers!

    I've never seen one of those.....very interesting.
    My Hofner Club Bass is about as short as I'd want to go......;)
