- Normally I tune my guitars to drop B, but now and then I go lower. Since I want to keep tension and want to sound tight I thought "why not add an inch to the scale length".
Question: will this difference be noticeable?
- I'm not the tallest guy in the world, but my hands are pretty big. I had a 27,5" guitar once and the thing that annoyed me the most was that the lower frets were further away from the body of the guitar. Taking a bar chord on the first fret wasn't easy so I thought "why not give up 3 frets for a normal nut-body distance".
Question: Does this have a negative consequence?
So as you probably noticed, I've put the regular guitar first, then the one with the longer neck, and then the same one except the neck is missing 3 frets and is shifted towards the body. This both for the RG and the FR.
Personally I think the RG26,5"21 looks like a toy, but the FR26,5"21 looks even more classy than the original.
What are your thoughts?
