scroll to the end of the article for specs

it's gotta be a typo, though, 'scale length = 4.75' you would have to have very small fingers! i'm sure it's 24.75" which is the same as gibson guitars

question for tb2000 owners: the specs say the basses were 34.5" but i've measured mine and i'm sure it's 33". if you measure from the nut to the 12th fret, it is half the scale length - i'm aware the bridge isn't a perfectly straight line.

i'm guessing the short-scale basses were 30.5" or so. anyone care to check their bass?

is it really 24.75? It feels more like 25.5 under my fingers. or rather, it feels more like a fender than a gibson, in various chord formations.

well i don't know - don't have a tb guitar

given that the bass specs are off i wouldn't be surprised if 24.75" is wrong too

all you have to do is measure from the inside of the nut to the middle of the 12th fret, then double that.

HI All,

OK, I'm no expert on TB guitars, but I did have a chance to measure whatever I wanted on #1482, a TB1000S. One of the first things I did was to measure the scale. That one is exactly 24 9/16" or 24.562" Are they all the same scale? I think the guitars are, but here again, I'm no expert, I just know for sure that #1482 is 24.562".

I just measured a 1000s the other day. It is 24.562. I think it was in the 1300"s
