Sunday afternoon, too darn hot to go out and work in the yard, so here I am stuck inside with my music and you, my fellow TB’ers. And that is a good thing; I couldn’t be in better company. Let’s give this a shot and see where it leads us. We all look for certain features and specifications when purchasing a bass. And we all have our personal reasons for what we look for in a bass. I’m also quite sure that the reasons are vast and varied. So, just how important is the nut width, and/or string spacing, and/or scale length when you are buying a bass? I have allowed three votes, intended so someone would have the opportunity to vote once in each of the three categories: nut width, string spacing and scale length. But, since there does not appear to be a way to apply that restriction, the results of the poll may be somewhat skewed. The terms narrow and wide are ambiguous at best. But, when applied to the bass guitar, I think you all get the gist of what is being said. There is just no way to establish a finite measurement to divide the two. With regard to scale length, the standard Short Scale (30”), Medium Scale (32”), Long Scale (34”) and Super Long Scale (35” and longer) is used. I do know there are exceptions, but you can just use rounding.
