: : 2) His hands aren't adult size *yet*; that "yet" is a fairly strong one, too, because he's just about at that "teenage growth spurt" point (if he hasn't started already).


: : A short-scale bass (30" scale length as opposed to the regular 34" scale) would be an option; Fender has the Bronco....


: It might be fairly expensive, but doesn't Fender also make the P-Bass Lyte, which is a light, possibly short-scale (I play an Ibanez 6-string, so I wouldn't know) instrument?

Emptyeye,
Fender *does* make the P-Bass Lyte (which is *awesome*), but it would probably be too expensive for a beginner's instrument.
