Lets talk about scale length and its general effect on tone. Then how do you think PRS moving to 24.5 inch scale necks will effect their sales?
I feel that the longer the scale length, the thinner the tone and less sustain a guitar has and less chunk/bottom end. I enjoyed the tone out of my SG and appreciated the tone but my gorilla size hands were too small for the size of the neck and the short scale. That is why I love my McCarty and PRS guitars in general, that 25 inch scale fits me like a glove.
Since they wll be moving more into 24.5 inch scale necks, such as the Santana models, do you think PRS will start to turn out guitars with more lower end and girth than Gibson? Wont chord clarity be lost with the sonic qualities of a guitar with that short of a neck?
What ya think?!
