    I just got an ibanez acoustic electric bass... it needs new strings... I have no clue where to begin on finding the right kind... I know I don't bronze strings... how do you think nickel would sound on it? It's a 32" scale... so what kind of gauges should I try first.

    Hi Psobecke,
    I fitted my acoustic bass with a set of Rotosound Jazz Bass Flatwounds ( SM77 ) Medium gauge and I find them great. They are 40, 60, 80 and 100. I used medium as I didn't want anything too heavy on as it was an acoustic.
