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 play
Just under 15" to the 12th fret.
Thanks. I am thinking guitar tuners but will have to look at the ends of the strings to see if they will go through the string holes. I'd imagine I could drill them larger if need be.
Tiny tuners on the Clubman Bass. I borrowed it from a friend in '78. I don't know what strings are fitted as a couple of years later a bass playing friend borrowed it from me and snapped the end off the nut, by the G string. He replaced the nut and fitted a fresh set of strings (badly). Forty years on they are still in occasional use.
