The Low End Lobster Video has now put me off contuing the mod idea. He just slated it, but I suppose I should go on what I like.....

I would definitely please yourself. His is just one view. I enjoy modifying guitars and basses, however I’ll advised it may be. With the Bronco you can create a quite decent bass for not very much. Like many modifications (to whatever basic platform) you are unlikely to recover your outlay but how often do you make a profit selling a modern instrument?

Tempted with one of these, to eliminate neck bends forever! :)

 

Do you have any more details about that? I'm curious about what's going on structurally that would eliminate neck bends. (I have some ideas of my own about that problem.)

It's a neck through from a company in Luxembourg called Tttides: https://tttides-guitars.com/gallery-infos/ 

From what I have seen, their guitars seem to be pretty flexible in terms of specs.

Playing around with a photo editor. Double P or P/J (technically speaking it's M/M or M/51). This never ends well for me, i.e. I often end up spending money :D

The P/P config looks better, IMO but I suspect that the P/51 would work better in practice for tonal consistency that close to the bridge.

Double P would be my choice but reverse the bridge Pup.

Just saying!!!!

How about a 51/M rather than a M/51?

 

I like a true neck pickup.

I have a Sterling by Music Man short scale Stingray inbound to try out… was also interested in the G&L Tribute Fallout. My first 30” scale bass but I love playing my 21” scale Kala so much I’m sure I’ll get on with it and there may be a 34” scale Sandberg Basic going up for sale in the fallout (pun intended).

I agree, I just didn’t have a mirror image loaded to try it out. Full disclosure, I’m a double P type fan anyway and have owned one in the past (a converted, original run Roadworn, sounded great but had horrific neck dive).

The s-s 'Ray is a great bass and massive value for money.  I bought one and a s-s Sandberg Cali knowing I would only keep one.  Almost had to toss a coin to decide in favour of the Sandy.

I went back and had a play with a reversed second pickup. I did not save the image and didn’t share for fear of folks asking for money for counselling or for replacement keyboards due to puke damage. It was not a good look 😖, which was surprising.

Any recommendations for 24 fret shorties other than swb and Danelectro longhorn? They (shorties) mostly seem to be 19 or 20 fret with dubious top end access . I  have a Mustang and nearly ran out of frets the other day!

Dean Evo?
