With the help of Jamplay and YouTube, my kids (ages 12 & 10) and I have learned to play guitar and have a blast jamming in the basement. Now we want to add bass to the mix, so I'm looking for advice to purchase a beginner bass that the three of us can share. I've found a few that are appealing (leaning towards a Squire Vintage Modified Jaguar), but I am concerned that my 10 year old may have trouble with a full size bass. She is 10 years old, but she is small for her age (smaller than most 7 year olds) and has short arms/small hands. With practice and patience, can a 10 year old handle a full scale bass or would I be better off picking up a short scale bass? Will a short scale bass play/feel like a real instrument or will I be getting a toy that I'll want to upgrade quickly? Any thoughts/advice are appreciated.
