    Hey guys,

    If anyone's interested I've designed a shorter extension piece based on my Thumb extension but suited to the Corvette.

    It's much shorter & can be used with the standard screw but still has a concave end to fit over the end of the horn.

    If anyone wants one I can 3D print them or I'm happy to send the stl file if you'd prefer to print one yourself.

    Just makes the balance & playing position a bit more comfortable for those of us with shorter arms :)

    Super cool! You have maintained a balance between functionality and looks, not too long, not too short.

    I wonder if this would look a bit better with:

    a) a bigger radius at the bottom so that it covers more of the top of the horn
    b) a concave bottom so that it matches the radius of the top of the horn, with a small compensation for length

    I believe it would look a bit more like part of the bass. :)

    Hi, thanks for the feedback.
    They are already concave on the bottom but I can increase the diameter easily enough.
    Cheers, Adam.

    No worries, pm me your details & I'll send one, would you like it as is or with the larger diameter base?

    Smart solution, I like it!
    I had no trouble playing the $$5 tho, and I am not a tall guy.

    It works.

    But it really depends on the angle you like to have the bass while playing. Many people won't need it.
    I like to have a slightly more angled position than what I could get from the bass as it is designed. And this is a clever, cheap solution to achieve that.

    Thanks AdzNadz for taking the time to design it. And the generosity to offer it to the rest who may need it.

    Back together!

    Had to put the red one in a storage unit for about a year because I was selling my house and ran out of space, but now it's back.
    Time to find that EMG pickup I bought for it and put a new switch in.

    No worries guys, thanks. I'm happy if you cover the cost of shipping.

    I'm using the smaller version & pretty happy with it, here's an action pic but it's starting to look like I need a bass with the gut-away!
