Hope everyones having fun Christmas shopping - most of ours is being done via internet. Gives us time to enjoy the real meaning of the season. Anyway.... I'm sort of stuck, and would like your opinions, feedback, etc. I'm close to ordering a custom-made, and the only question is 34 or 35 scale. Most of the feeback I've received is to go 35, since you can detune a half step and use a wider variety of strings and still keep a tight "B". But a 34 doesn't kill my left hand after a four hour gig, while the 35" Brice does. Perhaps it has to with action height, or wider string spacing...but I've heard good things about a 34" Ken Smith (among others) with tight low Bs. Thoughts? Thanks!!
