    A 1/2 size with a 38" scale
    I like it because it is so easy to travel with
    With a Realist and an amp , it sounds good too

    Can the scale be lengthened to 40.5" ?

    Thanks

    Only if you install a longer neck.

    Thanks
    I know that to shorten a string length , a false nut can be installed
    Was hoping there was an easier technique than replacing the neck

    Thanks
