Thoughts on 28" scale
Ok so I'm building a 7 string, but I still can't decide on a scale length. I've been thinking about going longer than our beloved 27" for a long time now, I thought about 27.5", then 27.67", then 30" (meshuggah FTW) and now I think I'm going for a 28" scale.
I've made the calculations on the string tensions (I want to keep the strings thin) and I'm pretty pleased with the results. Also I've mocked up the fret spacing on my other guitar to test the stretches, I'm also quite happy with that too.
So here's the question: do you have any experience with this scale, or any advice to make me go with another scale length?.
