I need a new bass. I have a short scale one (although not that great) and I'm thinking of getting another. Good idea or no?

nope, not unless you yourself are too small to play a full scale


My armspan is long enough.. It's not a problem of size, I just find a short-scale a little more comfortable.

If you prefer the sound and feel of a short scale bass to that of a long scale, by all means go for it. Most people prefer 34" scale length, but it's all up to your preference.

EDIT: And being to small to play a standard scale length bass is bull****. Anyone can play one, regardless of hand size, with the right posture, technique, and bass height relative to the body. Ask anarkee, she'll tell you all about it.

Shit, I'm so pathetic.

I've only played a (decent) full-scale bass at music stores, so I don't know how it feels to play one a lot. I'm most likely going to get a full-scale bass anyway.

Buy a short scale for tonal reasons. With a little effort any one can play a long scale.

I'd buy a long scale mainly because it gives you a different option. You may find its a bit different on the fretting at first but with proper technique its a easy transition.
