I've sort of at last got to grips with a tele choice and have a lovely Indonesian '99 3 colour sunburst with a beautiful one piece neck. Tonerider p90 at the neck and Lindi Fralin hot rails at the bridge. Now I'm thinking of getting an Ibanez Mikro, but am also drawn to Squier VM jaguar SS. Playability is what i look for, with complex tone possibilities equally important, and , as i am quite old now, the very short scale of the Mikro -28.5"- looks wonderful. But maybe I should just put together a tele 25.5" scale [ as described in a recent thread ] to start to get the feel of what I need from a bass? Any thoughts?
