I've been using my 35" scale 6-string Brice bass a lot for my other 2 bands. While I love that bass, that's a big neck to play on for 3-4 hours a night. Not to mention, I hardly ever touch the high C string for standard rock covers. So....I bought a 34" scale 5-string OLP MM3. These things rock! When set up properly, they easily rival the $1500+ MusicMan Stringray basses. Anyway, I'm stoked and thought I'd share.
