: I have a 3/4 size bass. I do not know the exact string lenght.
: how do I measure it? Is it measured from the nut to the tailpeice?
: is it nut to bridge? or the lenght of the fingerboard? what does it matter anyway. please fill me in on what I do not know. Thanks
The scale length is measured from the nut to the bridge; usually around 41.5 or 42 inches. It matters little, other than habit if you have two basses with disimilar scale lengths, although it doesn't seemt to bother me.
