ok, im a noob when it comes too scale length, so i was just wondering, if im getting a seven string with a 27.5 scale length, has does it differ from a 25.5 scale length?
sorry for another question but, would it be okay to play it in standard tuning??
Longer scale can handle lower tunings better because they will provide more tension. 27.5 is baritone length so you're going to want to string it with light gauge strings unless you plan on tuning at least a step down.

Longer scale=more bass

Hold on.


Honestly I'd advise against > 27" for standard tuning, but some bands do just fine. Just make sure to use lighter strings as mentioned above.
