    ....Anyone think the 25.4" scale would give any audible difference in overtones or general tone compared to a standard 25.5" fender length?

    thanks for any insights or thoughts.

    I have not tried this exact comparison, but I have played plenty of Gretsch (24.6") scale and Gibson (24.75") scale guitars and I could not tell the scale lengths apart, neither by the feel nor the tone. Note that these were electric guitars, I don't know how acoustics would compare. For Gibson vs Fender, however, there's a noticable difference in tone.

    I wouldn't worry about it.
