The 35" scale on this bass didn't used to bother me, but the more I fall in love with my EBMM Sterling, the more I find that it's simply easier to move around on that neck versus the Cirrus. I have a decent reach for someone with small hands who is small in general (I am a lady bassist!) and I have long fingers and good left-hand technique. I play with low action and a light touch. But in spite of this, no matter what I do, the more I get into playing faster stuff and lines which require a lot of precision (like disco octaves and the like), the more the Cirrus just kills me in first position. Has anyone ever sold a bass they loved because it doesn't "fit" them? My heart is sort of breaking right now but it seems strange to keep a bass that is not necessarily a good ergonomic match for me. I really want a US Marcus Miller Fender Jazz and it would certainly help my wallet to let the Cirrus go and put that money towards the Jazz, but it also makes me feel a little bummed because I worry I'll miss it. The thing is though, it kinda seems like hanging onto a pair of shoes that you like but they hurt your feet. You know? Thoughts? Hugs? Thanks!
