I am no expert, having been playing only a year and a half, but I don't think switching from a long to a short scale and back again should be much of a problem. I switch not only from long to short scale, but from 5 to 4 string, frequently. I play a 34" scale Ibanez 5, followed by an old Gibson EBO (30"), a Supro Pocket Bass (26"), and a DeArmond Ashbory (18" and fretless), and then back to the Ibanez 5, depending on my mood and what tone I am looking for. Maybe I am unnecessarily impeding my musical developement, but it sure is fun.
