    I was just wondering. I'm thinking 'bout getting a bass VI maybe on boxing day (good special price in a local store), but the thought crossed my mind... how hard will it be to get new strings when needed?

    Not hard to find online. More difficult in some box stores. Which bass vi?

    Only a few makers of them at the moment. Medium Scale strings are too long, short scale strings are too short. Need to be made specific for the instrument with small ball ends and smaller tuning post sections.

    But they can easily be found if you look in the right places.
