That was so much fun....Short scale basses are the future. Easier to play, sound great, fit into a guitar case ? ?

Hi, I went for 30" with some Rotosound short scale strings

. I read that a short scale can sound a bit more dull than the normal 34" but this sounds great, really punchy. The Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounder Jazz/P-Bass pickups probably help
