I'm new here. I'm building a Jazz Bass inspired Bass VI guitar and like the idea of using heavier strings, but they need to taper down to 0.070" before the tuning machines (I'm using Steinberg gearless tuners). My bass VI is a custom design, string length from ball start to nut end will be a shade over 35-1/2". If you're using strings of 0.095" and above I'd really like to see a picture of your peghead so I can see where the string tapers.
I found the other thread that was very useful, but it looks like some people are winding fat strings into the Klusons which won't be an option for the tuning machines I'm using.
Here's a picture:
Thanks a bunch!
