Does a 32" scale bass tend to sound at all different from a 34" of the same type? I'm having some hand and arm trouble, so I'm thinking of building a 32" P bass. I already picked up a SX 32" scale J style, and the feel for me is great. I'm of course speaking in generalities as it's hard to get an apple to apple comparison, but with guitars it's common for folks to discuss a tonal difference between a 25.5" (Fender) scale and a 24.75" (Gibson) scale guitar. I put a 24.75" scale neck on my strat that I built and it sounds good, but I don't know how different it would sound (if at all) if I'd used a similar neck in the normal 25.5" scale. But the shorter scale is more my style. I want the bass to sound like a traditional, thumpy P bass. Going with alder body, maple and rosewood neck...it will have a vintage style pickup, will wear flats and have some foam under the bridge. I assume the 32" scale probably won't make a difference that I'd notice (especially with flats and foam mute), but I thought I'd throw it out before I pull the trigger. Thanks for any help.
