    ...a 34" scale-5 string or a 35" scale-4 string??? (for a 34"-4 string bassist).

    Neither, play a 35" 5-string. Easier than you might think.

    The 35" 4-string.
     
  4. I've never had a problem with 34" or 35" scale 4-5 string basses.

    I doubt either would be a major problem.
     
  6. I have a BTB405QM, which is a 35" scale bass, I've played 34" and really don't even notice the difference. I've never really given much thought.:)

    Meh, once you play any for a bit it gets easy, for me at the moment, my main axe is a 35" 4 banger, I'm more used to that than any 5'er, so thats my answer.

    If I gave a few months just paying a 34" 5'er, my answer would no doubt be the opposite.
