Question: What is the advantage of playing a multi-scaled guitar?
Answer: The multi-scale provides the advantage of having a longer scale length for the lower strings and a shorter scale length for the higher strings. When bass strings have a longer scale, you can achieve a snappier, brighter, and clearer tone. When the treble strings have a shorter scale they produce an inherently warmer, mellower tone. This makes for a tonally balanced instrument. Straight scale instruments tend to suffer from drawbacks: extended scale instruments' high notes can sound shrill and piercing and short scale instruments' low notes can sound muddy. The multi-scale system allows for a "bost of both worlds" approach.
Question: How much does the bass guitar weigh?
