What does it mean? Is it the number of frets or what?
(string) length from saddle to bridge.
34" (86.4 cm) is the scale length for most basses and is called long-scale.
Saddle to nut, maybe?
Hehe exactly what i thought when i read it.
(saddle = bridge)
Although if you want to get technical, because the bridge saddles move back and forth, the scale length is twice the distance of the nut to the 12th fret. Someone on TB corrected me about that once, though I forget who.
Yup, the German word for saddle is used for the part of the bridge the strings rest on, so I sometimes get confused
Nut to saddle it is, of course.
Totally off-topic, what exactly does uber translate to?
Im also curious. I use it a lot meaning "kickass" or "better" or "best".
Über usually means "on top" or "above", "about" etc. "more than" is one of the more loose meanings.
The latin word for über is super...
Time to change my user title.
probably me i've been known to do that, from time to time.
something about the way you typed that reminded me of star wars
Who's more the fool- the fool, or the fool who listens to what he says about scale length?
