Hello, I plan to make the switch to short scale bass with my next purchase. Along with other reasons for this decision, I find the regular scale length a bit difficult for chords and my left hand tends to get sore after 2 hours of playing. (squire P bass) I'd like to hear how the switch went for others who've done the same. I think I might feel a little constricted in the smaller space, but ultimately it should make it easier for someone like me (im no big guy) as time goes on. Thanks in advance.
