I've been playing only electric for a few years, so I'm looking for an extremely cheap acoustic to screw around with...just wondering if short-scales have any disadvantages.
Short scales make the notes blend together. Some people think it makes it sound warm and inviting. Others think it sounds mushy and muddy. It kinda depends on the type of music you play. Lots of fingerstyle players like the short scale where people that use a pick tend to go with the longer scale.
