okay, this is from reading the threads about why would one play a longer scale than 30" or a shorter scale than 35". because for me, i've always had basses with different scales around the house. when my injury was worst, i had a 28.6" scale micro, a 19" scale ubass and a 30" scale which varied from a bronco to a hofner violin bass with a couple others in between. right now, i have a couple 28.6" scale basses, a couple 34" scale basses and a 32" scale bass, and i expect over time to have at least one sub-micro scale bass and will add another 30" scale at some point. this isn't just for the sake of having more than one scale, although sometimes one scale feels better for a song than another. but it's also because the basses i like that have features i want don't all have the same scale. and that works out well for me. how about you? do you like to play a variety of basses with different scales, only long scales, only short scales or only a single scale?
