I've always felt my hands are way too big to be a serious guitarist - so the larger distances involved with a long scale bass are not a problem.
I have a Vintage AV4+1 - a rather nice bass (J Bass body and P Bass Neck, 34" scale length)
A longer scale length for the low B string however, fascinates me.
Will heavier gauge strings on my 34" bass do the same thing?
Or is the longer scale length a real benefit?
Expert opinions most appreciated.
