We know that short scale is easier on the left hand and long scale (higher tension) is good for note increased definition) but what about tone?
I know petite oval holes tends to compress tone and project volume and grande oval hole are more airy and darker.
My questions are for two identical sound hole guitars of similar build and materials are
1. Does a shorter scale guitars push the bridge back on the soundboard to add more bass.
2. Conversely does Long scale guitars push the bridge forward to add more trebles.
3. Is it possible to create a short scale guitar with great note definition and a long scale guitar with more bass and some overtones (outside of a big bout Favino style guitar)
4. I like the sweetness of the overtone that some short scales guitar are known for but can a long scale guitar produce similar sweet overtones easily.
5. Are there any other advantages of Short scale and Long scale guitar over the other?
Misc. questions (answer at your own risk)
I am also wondering in Gypsy Jazz
Is there anything wrong with a well defined fundamental note ( & good attack) but with a little short and sweet overtone?
Does it have be dry with ultra- quick decay?
Hope I have opened a hornet's nest
