    I want to get a poor man's Jaco style bass. I can get good SX knockoffs in my choose of 3 scales: 30', 32" or 34. It would be nice to get the 32 scale, but I am concerned about sustain. When I hear Marcus Miller play his fretless he gets lots of sustain. I know 30" does sound dead, but would a 32"'s sustain be that much of a compromise?
