Just coming back to the bass. Used to play a Hofner which I believe has a 30" scale. I've been playing some guitar in the years since I last played the bass. The 34" is a bit of a stretch for my hands up by the nut so I was wondering what would be the disadvantages to playing a short scale bass? Besides Hofner what other basses have a short scale? I think I might gain a bit in speed of playing with a short scale but what am I giving up?
