It's not the size of it that matters, it's what you do with it that counts. And most guitarists can only feel the first five inches or so.

My Baritone has a scale length of 26.5, and I like it very much.
Got a question about Baritone guitars? Feel free to PM me.

Thanks to UG, I converted from Metalcore to some "real" Metal.

I normally prefer 24.75" scale, but I must admit once I get past the 17th fret, 24.75 becomes to small for my fingers and I find 25.5" scale is much easier to use at those higher frets. I'm desperate to try a 25" scale guitar, hoping it's the right balance for me between the two.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

I voted 25, but I actually like 25.1 the best. Because that's the scale length my guitar has, and I've never really found one I like more.

25.5 is the most comfortable for me. also 25.5 guitars usually have jumbo frets which make it even better
