    This thread is intended as a counterweight to the Short-Scale thread I started. If you would rather bite off your own fingers than play a short-scale bass, then this is your place !!!

    Mighty Women also welcome !!!

  2. I voted yes, because that's the only option in the poll. I avoid trying short scale because I fear I'll like it, and then spend the rest of my life trying to get it to sound like long scale.

    If I played four-stringers I'd totally consider a short-scale.

    I had a Fender Mustang for a short while and it was a great bass.

    Oh, one more thing. Henceforth, please make posts to this thread in ALL CAPS, LIKE YOU'RE YELLING. BECAUSE, YOU KNOW ... MIGHTY !!!
     
  5. NO!!! BUT I'D BITE OFF YOUR FINGERS!! MY DISAFFECTION WITH SHORT SCALERS STEMS FROM THE FACT THAT, UNLIKE THOSE WHO PLAY MOSTLY BETWEEN THE NUT AND FRET FIVE, I PLAY BETWEEN FRET FIVE AND TEN. IN THAT ZONE, THE NOTES ARE JUST TOO CLOSE TOGETHER FOR COMFORT ON A SHORT-SCALE BASS.

    (LOUD ENOUGH FOR YA? HOW YA LIKIN' ME NOW?) :D
