    Sounds interesting. Definitely will have to check it out. Never had a shorter scale bass, but who knows, this might be my first.

    Thanks for posting the info.

    I want one so bad... Literally have been waiting on this since the release of her signature model. Was just telling a buddy I wish they would release a St.Vincent bass, now I'm just going to be hoping they do a long scale.

    That's crazy. I literally posted on BP's page yesterday that I'd love a Valentine short scale bass. A St Vincent could be cool.

    I would say that the news of a shorter scale Music Man has made my day, but this has made my decade!!!

    I'm so already there. Can't wait ...

    This could be really fun! I've really liked the body styling of the St Vincent guitar... Let's see what they come up with for us bass guys.

    Hm. So the Big Al did not work - why then should a ST Vincent bass work better?

    Actually, the Big Al worked great. I owned a single H and still own an SSS model, they're awesome. It just didn't sell enough. If the St. Vincent guitars are selling well, maybe a bass version will too.

    Was the Big AL short-scale? That would be one difference.

    My only current bass is a 32" Gretsch. It's a cool scale length.

    Big Al was 34" scale. I like the idea of a short-scale EBMM but I'm not a fan of the St. Vincent look. I'm interested to see what the finished product is, though.

    So educate me on the advantages of having a short scale bass?

    I don't know of an advantage for you (though someone might correct me). For me, as a guitar player, it's an easier transition for me to my short scale (30") bass than it would be to a 34" bass. But I don't know that they're better in any other sense?
