has a lot to do with the articulation one gets with such a bass. That

articulation with a 34" or shorter scale bass...it just isn't all that
easy if you haven't already learned to draw the sound out of an
As for scale lengths longer than 35" on the bass guitar it's such a
bio-mechanically difficult instrument to play (much more so than the
upright) that any longer would be too much for most players. Hell, I
can play the upright and my main non-acoustic bass guitar is a 30"
