Technically, that's a 31.5" scale, does that qualify? If so, I've got a few to share 😎

Oops! I must admit that I have never measured it. For some reason I thought it was 32”

I'm a bit of an ACG fan, and I've played that very bass, before Scoop had it.

I've got 3 X 31.5" ACGs. Reckon I can sneak them in? I expect my 30.5" one might be pushing it though...

Well here you go folks, here's my 3 31.5" scale ACC 6 strings.

I'm delighted with them, and I'm also going to be adding an ACG 5er soon too.

@eude Those look gorgeous. Am enjoying your old 33” Shuker singlecut 6, but I can’t help but think I’d like a 32” or 31.5” even more.

@therealting, I can't lie, the shift to 31.5" has been as much of a game changer as 33" was back when I originally commissioned that Shuker!
Glad you like the basses though, and I'm delighted you're enjoying the old SC, it's an absolutely beauty!

32" MIJ Fernandes PJ-45 here. I bought it to see if I could/should switch from 30" to 32". I've decided to stick with 30", so I've put the Fernandes up for sale in the For Sale forum .

@solo4652 Would have had that if it weren’t pointy!

Yes, you're not the first person to say that to me about the bass! It is curious, isn't it. People do seem to gravitate towards different headstock shapes.  Pointy headstock = Rock (?), or 4 in-line vs 2 + 2, or "that silly hook-come-bottle-opener" on G&L basses, or ....

I hope the Ibanez Mezzo does well. It might convince other companies to offer some lower price 32s.

I’ve got a new medium scale bass! It’s a blimmin’ glorious Zoot Funkmeister and it sounds like a Jazz on steroids :)

My medium scale P got a new tort pickguard today and a Zero-Mod thumb rest. For those who have been curious about whether one will fit on a medium scale P, well it fits mine (‘84 MIJ Squier). I got a classic one and also the more aggressive V2 which is on my Dingwall Super P... and I think I prefer the V2 so will be getting a couple of those for my 61 and 64 Precision.

Well , how about the Retrovibe LPJ style medium. 

Bought mine a week or so ago, and its lovely. 

42mm nut, about 18.5mm spacing at the bridge.

the neck is so nice I'm going to use one on my aluminium tele bass build. 

All for £225 !

Do the low B's work at 32 inch scale?

Very much yes. This is my latest 32” 5 string and the B is probably better than any I’ve had before :)

It works brilliantly, mine are actually 31.5" scale!

Here's some samples of my Salace, with some low B thrown in >>

And here's some samples of my AJR Guitar Mods rebuilt 6 string fretless, same scale length >>

What are you planning/plotting?
