    Hey
    I was wondering how the scale length of a bass is determined......I've never been told properly so I have no idea at all. If someone could tell me correctly where the scale length is measured, it would be much appreciated.
    Thanks
     
  2. measure from the nut to the 12th fret, then double that. thats your scale length
