I know it has 22 frets, so is the scale like a vintage '58 Les Paul 24-3/4" scale, or 25.5" fender scale or the 24" fender style? Or is it simply something weird?

Or if you don't know, but have a TB500, you can measure from the nut (where it touches the fretboard) to the center of the 12th fret and times that number by 2.

Sorry if that's a dumb question, having a hard time finding neck information. I want to find one, but have never seen one in person and want to make sure that's really the model I want to match my playing.

Scale length for guitars is 24 3/4" with 22 frets
Scale length for basses is 33 1/4" with 20 frets

Hope this helps

EDIT - Corrected bass scale from 34 1/2" to 33 1/4"

basses are actually 33 1/4" scale - i know that one spec sheet shows 34 1/2" but it's incorrect

see this previous thread:
http://www.travisbeanguit.....fuseaction/forum.view.htm

is there a scan of the original tb2000 brochure mentioned at the end of that thread?

Thanks turn

I forgot about that thread. I got the 34 1/2" scale measurement from the same later green brochure. I'm trying to dig up one of those old black and white brochures. I corrected my post above.

Thanks!
