    Hi guys,
    I just got a sting signature and tried to install chromes, but they are too short. The blue nylon ends up sitting int he nut. Im using long scale 45-100.

    is anyone using chromes in this model? Anyone using any other flat wounds?

    Thanks

    Unfortunately, long scale D'addario strings are not designed for body through nor 35" bass. You will need super long scale. For the same price range, I would recommend Fender 9050's, they age well, I have had the same set of strings on and off my P bass for the last 10 years.

    When I had this Sting P Bass signature, I experienced just the same as you, OP, instead I was using LaBella Jamerson... Nylon sting wrapper were sit on the nut...but for years, Nothing bad happen to me/my bass. No problem except visual.

    You need extra long Strings... At least a 38" winding.
