    Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't a shorter scale make a guitar do the opposite of making it play a little stiffer?

    On the previous page it was decided they were a 'full' scale. I never played one but have been considering a shorter scale just for that reason.... (easier playing) Getting older sucks.

    Getting older may suck, but consider the alternative.

    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.

    Never played a Lead, but playing a shorter-scale guitar now and then feels good (less tension in my experience). If it feels good, do it - not a concession to getting older, Mr. Bad!
