This applies to guitars and basses. Both are available in short scale.
I’m currently playing a Martin LX1 travel guitar. It has a 23" scale length. A Martin D18 is 25.4" scale length.
I noticed the narrower width between the frets immediately. I’ve been playing the LX1 since May.
My other guitars are at my house in the city. I may not get access to them until next Spring.
How hard will the transition be back to full scale length? Especially flat picking notes? You play F# on the D string and then move you hand back to reach the A on the G string. It will be a wider span on a standard scale length.
Basses are even more extreme. My Fender Mustang short scale is 30" and Fender P basses are 34".
Anyone here switch back and forth between short scale and long scale lengths?
