Newb here... Been on here reading and stuff and decided to post. Some of these posts really get you worrying Poll's about finger lengths and hands and what not...I was ready to pull the trigger on a short scale bass because of many small hand posts...There are some on here with bigger hands than mine from what they say their finger lengths are and they were whining so I was really hung up on that until I read many other more enlightened posts about not letting that consume you and what not so I am somewhat past that...however not completely so baby steps for me..I think at least a thin neck with maybe not so wide a nut/string spacing is better for me...I think if I get a chunky one I'll just think my hands are small...plus I've held some fatter necks and it didn't feel right...So I am looking for a 4 string thats not short scale. Want a good bang for the buck 4 string under $300. I was thinking SX jazz but someone said there neck didn't feel like a jazz...Also thought of the Vintage Squier Jazz...any thoughts? I haven't tried/held any of the two I mentioned but read about them on other posts here. And yes I know I use alot of elipsis' ...or whatever the plurar form is.
