    So i bought this Yamaha BB405 on eBay for a pretty good deal! :hyper:
    But, the strings are knackered and i need a new set. Does anyone happen to know what size strings come with the bass? The person i bought it off said he never changed the strings so they are still Yamaha stock.

    This is my first 5 string however, as i have only played for 3 years so i have a question for you all if you don't have an answer to my previous question. Will a 135 gauge string set fit in this bass without getting caught in the nut or even snapping the edge of the nut off?

    Regards,
    Steve.

    One of my 4 strings came with 95's, and no modifications were needed when I put on 110's, so you'll be fine. As for what the stock strings are, I have no clue.
