what is scale length?
like my strat's scale length is 25.5 like most guitars i see but what does 24 inch scale mean? as in is the body smaller or bigger or does it mean the neck or what?
sorry if this is a stupid question

Scale length is the length between the nut and the bridge. It determines the size of the frets and has a lot to do with the tone of a guitar.
What nirvalliica said, and bass scale length is generally 34" and five/six strings tend to be 35"
