Something like this I think:
24 Fret
- 30.5 inch scale length
- 4002 body
- Overwound, custom pickups
- Richlite fingerboard
- Scooped heel

I would buy a short scale 4003 instantly. Is there a reason why that was never done?

Apparently, they made a couple of short scale 4001 basses...

Thanks for that. So it has been done, but not really put into production. I wonder why. It would seem that a short scale would only enhance the Rickenbacker sound.

OK... let me clarify :lol:

I would buy a short scale in Jetglo, Azureglo, or ruby instantly, if the price was reasonable.
