    Any more news on the St. Vincent bass?

    I haven't been paying close attention. Has any more info come out about the new signature bass from Annie Clark?

    I think you'll be surprised how normal a 32" scale feels. My main bass is medium scale and I can move between it and a34"bass without really noticing, but whenever I pick up a 30-30.5" things feel immediately weird.

    The only thing noticeably "shorty" about it, to me, is that you do get a bit of the sort-scale tubbiness. Lots of Big Fat Lows, not a ton of sizzle. Assuming this new model is active, though, that's easy to work around.

    Will it be 30 or 32 scale? Or we just don't know yet?

    I thought I read it was medium scale, so think that would mean 32.
