Ace 4 Short Scale Bass
Introducing our new Ace 4 Short Scale Ace (30 inch scale) bass. Our short scale provides the punch, fatter-sounding low notes you expect from a short scale while being both lighter and more compact than other short scale basses. Because it does not have a head..
Our new headless bolt on bass neck, is tapered D shape. We were asked to develop a slimmer tapered style neck for today’s progressive musicians, and we nailed it. With fully assess able 24 frets designed for the player wanting a full two octave range.
We use only the highest quality woods, three-piece maple neck through body, ash body wings and beautiful high polished Brazilian cherry Jatoba fretboard. All South Korean hardware and it uses standard single ball strings. Comes with a high-quality custom hard case ready for the road or overhead plane compartment.
All guitars are Bootlegger Guitar designs.
All-new ergonomic, balanced design suited for sitting or standing playing. 44 mm body, hard maple with swamp ash body wings. Belly cut for comfort. Bootlegger Whiskey Tattoo.

Les Haley’s (player definition) Our Modern Short Scale Tappered Neck
Up by the nut, in the first couple of frets, it feels like a medium V. As you go down towards the middle of the Ace 4 neck, it tappers of to what I would describe as a C shape and then flattens out a bit more past the 12th fret into almost a U or D shape. It changes depending on the position you’re playing in. I’m not an expert on neck shapes, but I suppose a tapered C shape is a good general description.
This definition by Les is exactly what we designed for our modern short scale tapered neck bass. Designed to be easy to play and easy on the back.
Thank you Les you nailed it.
