I recently added a short scale SX to my bass family. I am curious as to whether my fellow TBers believe that an audience can tell the difference in sound if someone is playing a short scale versus a long scale. Scenario: Your are playing at a gig and you have a regular scale Fender P. You unplug the long scale and plug in the P configured short scale on the same rig. Adjustment to the volume and tone knobs on the bass can be made. I know it is hard to compare but please give this old geezer and long time bass player a break. Many thanks!
