He there - just got a most excellent Artcore DC from fellow TBer Scotch Tape. Nice bass. Anywho - I want to try some flats on the bass before I go ahead and Darkstar it. I know and love both Chromes and Labellas on my P basses, but whch are the best flats on a semi for some upright sounding thump?? Frosty. PS. do these 34" scale Artcores need extra long string sets?? the bridge and tailpiece certainly take up a lot of string length!!??
