Yeah, at Danelectro, efficiency ruled!They probably have one gang saw for all their scale lengths like Fender did decades ago. It just makes sense.
My favorite bass was always the Vox Clubman (and the Teisco ripoff) followed by the Hofner. One is 30.1" and the other 30.5" (both likely metric) but I have always built a 30"and a 27" baritone until recently. Built a 34" bass for a customer and a 27" bass for me. The 27" through a compressor I accidentally left inline sounds plenty long enough and was easier to playThat’s .25 shorter scale than my Dano baritone neck!
Yeppers lol, I never even considered censorship on THAT wordDid you type " C0ck"? LOL it got censored...LOL.
I should have mentioned that my Dano neck is Korean reissue. As for vintage Danelectro, I’d be more surprised by a variety of scale lengths than by shared scale lengths.

I really liked the double cutaway bass, for that one they used a guitar neck and simply fretted it 29.5" scale, with only 15 frets.
Nice looking project. Looking forward to seeing It come to completion.
Sweet, those cheezy things were always way better than they shoulda been, ive had lots of fun with them. Here's my living room rig from 15 or so years ago, now priceless collectables nah........
The Dano is a '57 U2 with original tweed coffin case! View attachment 928961 only thing there i really miss is the Ricky steel.
I'll be watching your progress!
