Hello, I am in somewhat of a predicament. I currently have a 4 string bass that is a 35" scale. I play in C-Standard tuning with string gauges .050 .070 .095 .115 (which are comfortable to me and I like them). I am now looking into getting a nicer 4 string, likely something custom. I started to explore Carvin again (I already own a 6 string fretless of theirs) because I like their instruments, and I found a great bass in terms of everything I like, however, they cannot do a 35" scale vesion of it no matter what -- they only do their 4 string bass in 34" scales. So, I want to pose two questions. 1) How bad would the jump be going from 35" to 34" and how much of a change in tension would I notice/how much thicker strings would I need to use? 2) is it really worth to go down the inch if I'm comfortable with that scale? Because I like Carvin's stuff, but I am just unsure of what move to make. If anybody knows of other custom options that offer a 4-string in 35" scale that I can explore and that would be around $2,000 or less, that would be awesome! Thanks!
