If so, I'm wondering why.
I do. I have the 20.7 scale Duo Sonic and an Affinity Strat with a Strat Mini neck (20.5) And I’ve got another Mini neck waiting to build another. It’s because I’ve got small hands and short fingers, and short scale is just more comfortable and easier to play for me.
Bends are much easier and fretboard is usually flatter and wider on short scales. They also rarely have thin single coils, which I'm not a fan of.
I have five 24.75" scales. Three with P90, two with humbuckers.
One 25" with P90
One 25.5" with single coils.
Not only, but mainly. My two top played guitars are my CV Duo Sonic (24”) and my Peavey Patriot (24.75”). It just feels more comfortable to me. Also, I use flatwounds on the duo sonic and the shorter scale keeps the string tension down so I can still do decent bends.
I play only short scale Basses.
Why not, 34 inch scales are dime a dozen, I like to stand apart from the crowd.
I have 2 Mustangs (24" scale), that are my main players. I didn't pick them for the scale, but because they had the sound I liked. I don't notice much difference.
My first guitar was a silvertone 1478 and was a short scale and I didnt even know it till they came out with the reissue one. I wanted to buy it but when I played it, there just wasnt that feel there. I thought it would bring back some memories but it didnt.
Dude... I ALMOST asked of you were usin flatwounds on that latest "RiffRaff" video you did! Lol... I guess you weren't, but I didn't know the Pat was a short-scale! Ahhh... Enlightenment! Lol...
I play what I own …. one short scale 24", the rest regular Gibson/Fender spacing.... scale length means nothing to me, as far as playability, realistically
