If light weight, easy playability, and unique looks are what you seek, the Short Scale Mooncaster bass body is for you. Its hollow body and string-thru, post-mounted bridge give it an girthy, fat tone that defies its diminutive size. You can have it routed for TV Jones Thundertron pickups in the bridge position, neck position, or both. Additionally, the wide range of wood, Lam Top, and finish options allows you to build a bass you're unlikely to see anybody else playing. And unlike many short scale basses on the market, its construction is pro-level in all respects. It boasts craftsmanship and attention to detail that is second to none.

Neck Fit and Scale Length

This body fits all Warmoth short scale bass necks. It can be either 30" or 32" scale, depending on which neck you choose. Short Scale necks are a joy to play. Even notes on the first fret are easy to reach and play without fatigue.
