A fix for bad D & G strings on Fender 9050 flats?

    The G string is the worst. Really twangy, dead, and harsh.
    Does anyone have a fix for this?
     
  2. Buy New Strings? You may just have some "lemons" on your hands, or bass rather.
     
  3. :cool: Yeah, you can occassionally get some bad strings in any brand. Sometimes they've been stored incorrectly. Sometimes, they were just made incorrecty.

    I use Fender flats most of the time. I got a bad "G" in a set once, a few years ago. I took it back to my dealer and he gave me a new set.
