Okay I've searched on this subject abit. And it seems people like one or the other. But i was just wondering if anyone has BOTH scales in their possession and how you are coping? Like just say a 4 string 34" and a 5/6 string 6" and how you go about switching between basses during a gig. For me, i have a 4 string 34" spector, and a 6 string 35" ibanez, and i find that i have to play with a much lighter touch on the 4. But thats probably due to many other reasons other that just the scale length. Any opinions on the subject matter is appreciated.
