    Just wondering if anyone has one of these basses and if so, I was wondering how it would compare to a Gretsch Broadkaster and what gauge strings you would recommend?
    Thanks for any info, I really appreciate it!
    I am expecting one in a few days and I want to know what I am in for.:eek:

    I think LaBella Deep Talkin' strings, a heavy gauge set, would be awesome on that bass. Be sure to get the right scale length- LaBella's short scale fits around 30" scale, and their medium fits around 31" scale. The neck of the Framus I used to have was very very skinny, like 1.25" across the nut, and had a very thick/deep neck profile, like a deep U.
