Extra long scale flatwound

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by melkinsbass, May 13, 2010.


  1. I have a Washburn AB95 five string and was looking to put flatwounds on it. It's a 35" scale, but I'll need longer; there is a lot of string length between the bridge and the tail piece. I'll probably need something that would fit a 36" or larger. Suggestions. I can't seem to find definitive answers. Thanks.
     
  2. anybody?
     
  3. Both TI Jazz Flats and GHS Precision flats come in extra long scale and will fit your bass.
    Five string sets in both low B and high C
