    41" is a pretty standard and comfortable length.

    yeah, 41-42".
  5. Do you want to know the scale or the total lenght?
    As previous posters said, the 3/4 scale ir around 41-42 inches, but the total string lenght is much more.

    It'd be a nice idea to fill out your profile too.


    Thanks in advance.
