lately i have really been favoring my fender jazz 4 string over my cirrus 5. I bought the cirrus for the sound, but the larger scale really makes the playing uncomfortable at times. I have thought about trading the cirrus in for a fender jazz 5. I do not use the b string a lot, but it would be nice to have for songs that need it. I have small hands and short arms, and have recently gotten into really trying to play, instead of just learning songs. The 34" scale seems to feel better- does anyone else feel this way???
