Just a therotical question about possible tunings ?

  1. Hi !

    I just thought a little bit and I now have a question. I you would make sth. like a 16" scale neck and would it string with normal gauge strings you could go sth. like one octave like a high e on a guitar goes. Would this sound good or are there some physical barriers concerning this ?

    it would be the same as putting a capo on the 12th fret of a 32" scale bass. perform the same way.

    off to misc.
