Hi there I'm new here so hello to everyone. I've been scrolling through these forums for a while now and i'm looking for a new bass. I was thinking about an Ibanez Artcore(ABG140) as i've read some good things about it. But in some posts there have been mentioned some problems with the knobs and something that worried me even more: the strings. It seems they must be of a long scale in order to fit but as I am a bit clueless when it comes to strings I don't know if they are easy to find. So are they common, are they made by every mark of strings (D'addario for example)?
