    I have Epiphone Viola bass. It's short scale bass, 30.5".
    But it seems its tailpiece is longer than others.

    The string I want is Rotosound Tru Bass 88.
    It has three kinds of lengths, short, medium, and long.

    The list below is string length guide on Rotosound website.

    - Scale Lengths -
    Short Scale 30"
    Medium Scale 30.5 - 32
    Long Scale 32 - 34

    - String Lengths - Ballend to Silk -
    Short Scale 32.5
    Medium Scale 35.25
    Long Scale 37

    Which one should I get?
