    Nice, I've wanted to get one just to see what my double drop A tuning does at 28". For me, moving up in strings and scale length also meant moving the guitar up higher to be able to play when standing. My 30" instruments have the upper horn basically at my shoulder like a nerdy jazz bassist, lol.

    I love 28" scale myself. 29" is starting to push it for me, and anything less than 26" feels tiny to me. I guess you get used to extended scale after a year or two.

    I'm definitely getting used to the 28". It's now not so bad at all. Just needed to pump up my girly hands yah.

    HNGD! Man if I had endless money and space, I'd buy an RG9 just to play After The Burial's Neo Seoul.

    Scale length can't be that bad considering bass has 34" scale with 130 gauge B... unless you play a lot of chords and leads on the lower frets treble side I guess.

    I play a lot of chords on guitar that I don't do on bass though.
