Size Bass

What is the best short scale bass guitar for a beginner?

Also, does it sound signifigantly different then a standard size bass?

A short-scale bass will sound the same as a standard size bass, since you're tuning it exactly the same as a standard size bass.

The only difference would be that the strings on a short-scale bass will be looser and floppier (lower tension) than on a standard scale-length bass, which makes it easier for your fretting hand to press them down. And the shorter scale means the frets are a little closer together, which also makes it a little easier to play if you're a beginner or if you have smaller hands. OTOH, if you pick too hard, the strings will rattle and buzz against the frets.

Those are really the only differences between short-scale and standard-scale basses, AFAIK.
