: I have noticed that I can more easily bend the G and D strings of my old short scale 4-string easier that I can my 35 inch scale 5-string. Is this my imagination? Both sets of strings are reasonably new, same brand, guage, etc...

: Thanks

No, it's not your imagination. A longer string needs more tension to be in tune. And this affects all strings - not only D and G.
