Thanks for your input. I like the tension of the A D G strings and since I don't use a truss rod I was worried about the low E bowing my neck a bit too much. (Besides, if harmonica players get to change instruments, we should too!) I was also wondering how you cam up with 34" for the scale. If I've got a G on a 25" scale now, I'd like to essentially extend it by 3 frets. I was figuring that probably put me more in the 28-29" range. Maybe more like a baritone guitar which I believe are about 27-30" depending on how much string tension you want. Its my understanding that 34" is more of the standard bass guitar range. Also if anyone else is reading this and jumping in...ADF# for "Spanish" in A right? I know you meant that. I spend all day teaching beginning instrumental music and sometimes by the end of the day my brain hurts from all the treble/bass clef, Bb/C/Eb/F transposing. Thanks so much for your input though. I love to flesh things out on here. Helps me think about stuff better when I write it down and see what other people have to say!
