Hello again! I have some questions regarding scale length, or more specifically, extended scale length basses. I know all the physical factors, like what it is, why it works, etc. What I want to know is: does it actually give you more responsive lower strings and clearer notes down there?, If so, at what scale length would you say that it starts to make a dramatic change (I'm talking about over 35" for anyone who's interested), , and finally does the long scale length have an adverse affect on the high strings even if you get the proper gauge for your liking? I would also like to ask everyone what their favorite scale length is and if they have a prefered company for 35'' and above scale length basses. The only extended I've played was a Fodera Emperor II (probably one of the best fretted instruments I've played) with a 35" scale, five strings, chestnut top, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.....*wipes off keyboard*. Anyway, thanks for the help on my other questions and I hope you can answer some of these!
