I felt the itch to build another guitar, so I decided to start a short-scale bass project, since I don’t own a short bass. I ordered a showcase body and neck from Warmoth last night. It will be a Sherwood Green mini Jazz bass. I plan on painting the front of the headstock to match the body.
The neck is a “Warhead” 30″ scale in roasted maple with a rosewood fretboard. The body is solid alder, weighing 4 lbs, 10 oz.
I started a build page for this project here: http://auralsensations.com/guitars/gregs/short-scale-jazz-bass-build/
