    Yes they will fit 36 scale basses, but besides 36" scale my Carl Thompson is strings through body ! So I need some string longer or equal 39" ! Thomastik, Rotosound and DR extra long scale strings that will fit it ! Daddario is 38" ! I just made a research !

    Thanks

    Ken Smith make strings that long,, i believe..
     
  8. You'd think that Carl would throw in an extra set since it was the most expensive bass he ever made.:p

    Call him and ask. You are a return customer, not some bozo who wants to see if the $900 he saved is enough to get a bass started for him.

    Nice bass again.

    Bass42, my strings may fit. Pm me the distance from the front of the ball end to where the nut is and distance to the tuner post on each string.
