What difference does the scale length make Using the same weight strings at the same tuning on the shorter scaled OOO the strings will be lower tension (looser). So, more sensitive to the touch, more bendable, but perhaps a bit less volume or punch ! Whilst the slightly longer scale length of the OM will have a greater volume and projection but you might say is slightly more ‘diffilcult’ to play with the higher tension strings.  So in the simplest terms, a player who wants the greatest volume and projection might gravitate toward a longer scale instrument, while a player who wants the more delicate expressiveness and note bending might prefer a shorter scale instrument.
