Hello, I'm a beginning bassist and just received as a gift an ESP 4-string electric bass with neck-thru construction and a 35" scale length. The literature that came with this bass emphasizes the benefits of the extra scale length for low-tunings. Since I'm just starting out, I just want to use standard pitch. Would it be "safe" to tune a bass with a 35" scale length to standard pitch? It's strung with 50/70/90/110 gauges, if it makes any difference. My concern is stress on the neck. Do I need to have a setup or adjustment done? (I wasn't sure whether to post this here in the Setup & Repair.) Thanks!
