The X3M takes the Miezo to the next level: five different necks for five scale lengths which fit the same body and are über-easy to disassemble and reassemble.
Scale length available are: 25.5", 22.75" and 18". Take your pick. The 18" scale neck bolted onto the body fits right inside the X3M gig bag. The other two necks fit inside individual pockets in a separate compartments. And that is all within maximum hand-carry size allowed by our beloved airlines.
We also offer a custom 27" and a30" scale model. They will marginally exceed the maximum allowed length - the 30" by a mere 2" and need a custom gig bag. Those who do not travel often will find in the super light 27" and 30" long X3M the best companion for long gigs - and fitting inside a guitar gig bag.
The X3M is a serious bass and not a scaled down, tamed MüB. Plug it in and you will wonder how such a light, nimble bass can sound so big: tight lows, even response across the board, well balanced tonal range and a B string so tight you won't believe you're playing a short scale bass. And it's incredibly light, at around 6lbs for the 30" scale bass.
Explore the inherent tonal differences of the scales. Try different tuning, different string type and gauge. It's a very creative approach that opens up a universe of tonal possibilities. Either ways, the X3M is an amazingly flexible design, built by the same people who build your MüB, with the same tools and the same uncompromising passion,

About Paypal fees: In their immense generosity, Paypal arbitrarily state that, fees are on the seller side. Reality is, we pay Paypal fees on almost everything we buy for the shop. So we kindly ask you to share the burden with us. It's usually 4 to 5%. Say, you pay only 2% and everyone's happy. It isn't much - $20 on every 1,000 bucks.. But for us, paying $40 fees when we have already paid once seems unfair. To be sure, you can choose not to split the fees. We won't argue. Thanks.
Please note: prices do not include shipping or any import tax on your end. But you know that ;-) Please refer to the Price page for more details.
