    I've never played a 33" scale- is there a noticeable difference from the standard 34" scale?

    For me the difference was subtle at first, but the more I played the 33" inch scale the more it just seemed to fit my hands, my reach and my playing style. I notice less hand fatigue during shows and less soreness the day after long sessions.

    There will be a minor adjustment, particularly on slides, but the learning curve is shallow and the time to learn the new spacing was very short for me.

    And, for the record, I have large hands and can pretty easily stretch five frets. Before switching to 33" and 32" scale basses in late 2010, I played both Fender Ps and Js as well as the Music Man Sting Rays for many years. All great basses, but I much prefer the 33" and 32" scale basses. The Sting Rays have been gone for about a year and I've finally decided to sell the vintage Fenders. All in favor of the 33 and 32 inchers.

    One more thing....Jazmin has a Jazz style neck in terms of width, a little slimmer front to back, with a relatively flat radius. All of this, with the Wenge neck and board, make her action very nice and she is smooth and silky to the touch. Great playing bass.

    So why am I selling her? I have two more that get more attention than Jazmin and I need to get her in the hands of someone who will give her more time than I do. A time and money issue.

    Please PM me if you want more info.

    Hope this helps.
