Also if the Aria is 30" / Cort 34" that's a far larger discrepancy than my situation so 100% ymmv

Yep I did, always a long scale player. Aria II John Taylor fan boi.... the aria is 29 something I think, so yeah that 4 or 5 inches makes the difference, according to my wife oh-err!!!

However, I still managed to knock a pint of water over in my office last night, with its headstock. Some of it on the new Headrush. Consequently, I would have no problem gigging he headrush because it was impervious to the drenching.

I'm just not sure I want to swap between basses and hit bum notes. I don't like looking at fretboards, and I'm comfortable with one scale length. Got to decide which one :(

Agreed. I was (and still am) a fan of JT and those Aria Pro II Sb basses. I used to have an SB1000 which was an outstanding bass. But I sold that back in the UK. I've since got an SB700 which is the same bass only passive.
Every time I pick mine up, I can't help but break into Rio or Girls on Film... :-)

+1 I had an SB600 for a while and it was fantastic. Should never have sold it!

Welp, prefer this to short scale which is odd.

I continue to enjoy basses.

Now my cricket bat guitar won’t get lonely

I am so pleased

That is a cracking bass, needs flats though :)

I've put literally hundreds of hours on my short scale in the recent months. My muscle memories are built on it. I'm hitting bum notes constantly on a long scale ~ love it though, probly my one and only now!

It’s fuckin cool. Sits on the other leg super well. Surprising contrast to my ol’ sg bass in that regard - emgs sound good too.

Aaaaaaaaaa :D

Yeah I know, was tempted by that before I went for the Cort. I'd have the same problem with the long scale though lol.
