    I'm kinda thinking so myself. Not to hijack the thread, but in case anyone is inspired, here's my collection of sub-short scale basses.

    Thanks, Jim Hanks! I just saw this. I had already sent him a PM I wanted to know overall length and weight. It puts it in the same price range as the Hadean when shipping is added. Right now I am torn between all three because I am really intrigued with fretless. Is it wrong to want a fretless that sounds like an electric? The SmallGuitars.com P-bass in black is still in the running with round wounds but I think I need to find bass tuners like Kohanmike. They look like 1970ish old style Schallers. I definitely would have more money in the P-Bass but it sounds so good. I wish I could listen to the Hadean and the Savannah with the flat wounds. Neck dive is a concern. I know he said the Savanah has it. Does the Hadean or the Small P-bass have a problem with neck dive?

    I'm not seeing a PM from you HighD. The SmallGuitarsP-bass is 31.5 inches full length and about 5 pounds, the Savannah Lightning is 33.5 inches and about 6.5 pounds.

    If you want fretless electric, that's your prerogative.

    I just realized the tuners on my P-bass were stock at that time. The new ones use guitar tuners.

    My P-bass does not have much neck dive, but I always use leather straps with rough inside to hold the bass in place.

    Yes, I sent a message over in TalkBass. Your friend got back to me after I had finished reading up on fretless basses. I am now scared completely away from them. I need more hours on a regular bass or a U-bass or any kind of fretted bass. I have not given up but I am now going in the fretted direction.

    Ah, I misunderstood. I actually had a fretless but lined acoustic bass uke for a while and although it wasn't that difficult to play in itself, I found it was awkward to go from fretted to fretless, and the bass was difficult to change strings, plus the neck was too wide, so I shelved it and bought a Hadean acoustic walnut cutaway.
