    Blame this on too much spare time I guess.

    Has anyone ever put flats on an early 90's era Warwick 5 string neck through stage I streamer? You know one of those maple body jobs that tend to be a bit on the "bright side" but otherwise is a pretty decent bass.

    second question:
    I'm thinking Labella 760 FM-B (the Medium gage ones)....anyone have on opinion as to this ....or would the Lights be a better choice?

    (my other bass has a 35" scale and I'm use to a bit more tension in my roundwounds)

    I put the labella jamerson sets on my 1990 thumb, very high tension as you would expect, but it really gave the bass a new character. The fundamental was much stringer than I had had ever heard and it had great punch. Not really old school sounding, but a good sound nonetheless.
