Thank you -- that was a very interesting read, and what I hoped would appear in this discussion.

Glad it was of any help!

I had quite a few links to articles like this (on different guitar-related topics) but unfortunately my hard drive broke and didn't manage to salvage them

I use 24.75" scale for Drop C#, I believe Seether have used 24.5" for Drop C# and I know Paramore use 24" scale for Drop C.

Anything will work fine if you have it set up right.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

Also interesting: In Flames have used 24.75" for drop A#, Baroness have used the same for drop G and Sunn O))), while I don't know what they tune to, have been known to use standard Les Pauls.

To be fair though, Sunn O))) aren't exactly known for their pristine clarity or crisp tones

Dimebag used 24.75 scale guitars only. Anywhere from .25 step down , all the way to 2.25 steps down. Not that that matters, but hey. What I find interesting in "my personal opinion", is that the clarity on the higher register of 27" inch scale seems to suffer comparred to a 24.75 or 25.5. But the lower end is does sound better.
