If there is such a thing I would be interested in finding a short scale Westone Bass..passive preferred, a Thunder would be a total bonus...could be shooting in the dark mind you Pacing & Thinking

Are you only interested in local sourcing Si?
There always seems to be a lot of Aria Pro II's and Avengers over 'ere.

Hi Barry, not particularly but in the end it is down to budget..shipping costs could be a deciding factor. Hadn't considered Aria's or Avengers but keeping it Matt's would be a good option. I will see what is available this end first, many thanks Smile

If you're after a shorter scale passive Thunder, then it can only be a Thunder II Version 3 Smile

I've had a Pearl White one on my wish list for ages (never seem to have the money when I see one, though - they seem to be elusive beasts!).

There's one on eBay (UK), but it's a bit rich for my tastes (& the wrong colour Smile ):

Thank you guys, initially I wasn't even sure if Westone had produced a short scale bass. At the moment I am playing a 30.5" bass scale (Hagstrom Futurama) and find the transition from guitar to bass really comfortable with this scale length. I recently bought a Squire Classic vibe Jazz bass, can not fault the instrument and it is very playable but the flow is different compared to a shorter run.

Thanks for the heads up on the T2 and the Concord 1. The T2 is a bit rich but I will see what the seller is prepared to take. Not sure how the Concord will sound but there are a couple of C1's on the bay so might be worth a trip out...Cheers again
