Sir, I have a poblem with the sound from the "B" string on my bass. It is very losseeeee sound when you play on every fret. (sonic thing) It is a 1985 Fodera Emperor Elite (neck through) 5 with 34 1/2" scale that I just bought few months ago. I tied with all kind of differnt set of strings (types, sizes and makes) but only some differnt (the best string so far would be Nickel 130 from d'Da) but not much but when I tune it to C# than you see the improvement. I wonder if it would help by extending the total length of the 5th string by have it go through body of the bass. I saw Worrier bass do this on 5th string. If yes, will it effect the intonation on this string. Do you have differnt thought? Thankssss for your contribution.
