Are you using the scratchplate to bridgeplate measurement as a way of locating the bridge? If you are, you're much better of getting a nut to bridgeplate measurement or setting the saddles in the middle of their adjustment range and measuring out the scale length from the nut to the saddles.

That's a nice project. I just replaced the pots in buddy's Mustang bass that he got new in 1976 or 1977 so I might be able to get you some measurements, too, if you need them. His son wants to start learning so he's starting out on the old short scale.

milocj: thanks.

I agree with you about the nut to bridge ratio. I tried it but couldn't find any comromise with the saddle placement. I compared it with pictures on the net and it would've been too close to the pickguard for some reason. So I needed to know where the bridge is located for aesthetic purposes. It's strung up now and tunes perfectly.
