For the purposes of this site, scale means the sounding length of the (open) string. It's short for scale length but it's common to just say scale.


For most instruments, all strings have (roughly) the same scale, so we can talk about the scale of the instrument. For most other instruments, the main strings all have the same scale, so again that's simple.


We deal with the others as we meet them.
