Cigano short scale, Moreno short scale. I suspect that judging volume while you play is not something one can do.

When I was starting out I played a Hodson long scale for a couple years. When I bought and regularly played a D-500, I almost immediately damaged my right ear, (the one closest to the sound hole).
