I've studied piano in the past for approximately 6 years. However it's been quite some time since I last played so I thought I would try something new as I revisit music. I love the PRS guitars and I've been spending quite a bit of time at the local guitar shop trying out various models as well as other brands (Fender, Epiphone, etc.). I'd like to purchase a PRS from the SE line but I'm struggling to understand the ultimate effect of scale length on my ability to learn the instrument.
My fingers aren't long and I wanted the most user friendly instrument to begin with. I love the sound on the SE 245 and SE Custom 24. What would someone recommend as a better entry point, the 24.5" scale instrument or 25" scale instrument? Experienced guitarists claim to feel a difference; I'm not sure I can honestly distinguish.
Any pointers would be appreciated!
