Just out of curiousity, how does scale length affect playing?
Alot of people have said that it took them a long time to get used to a longer scale guitar.
Point being, I am probaly getting this, http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Schecter-Guitar-Research-Hellraiser-C7-7String-Electric-Guitar?sku=484198#new a schecter 7 string, but it has a 26.5 inch scale length.

Tl;dr, see the thread title.
