I wasn't too sure where to post this (here or Setup). Anyways, I was confused because I was always told that after the string breaks at the nut, extra length does not really affect overall string tension. There was an example of a Matt Garrison 6 33" scale bass on the site stating that the extended B made up for the shorter scale length "and then some". Is this true or mostly just a gimmick? What do all you other pro builders out there think? Thanks and I appologize if this has already been discussed.
