The coolest short scale bass EVER? (and it can be yours)

Hey Groovehacker, Scott here… hope you’re having a wicked day! :)

I got my hands on a VERY cool short scale bass the other day… so, I thought it’d be fun to make a video about it for ya…

There’s some things I LOVE about short scale basses… but equally, there are things that I don’t like too.

In this new video I’m gonna share the good, the bad, and the ugly…

Oh… AND… I’m giving it away… so YOU could win it! All the details are in this video.

As always, see you in the shed...

Scott :)
