Nathaniel Murphy has Questions: Short Scale Basses

What do bassists think of short-scales? Do they feel different? Do they sound different? Are they just for kids? Nathaniel Murphy has questions, so we sent him looking for answers. Verified big person Scott and fellow BASSment dweller Mike Larsen give Nathaniel the long and short of it, filling him in on the full-throated world of short-scale bass.
