Hi folks, I don't post here often.... but I know I can always find good info! I just bought a Fretless Fender Jazz Bass for $250 (A GREAT Deal!) but I need to put new strings on it. I have a brand new set of Elixers (Lights, with the Polyweb coating) and I was wondering if it would be alright to put them on it. They're roundwound, so they're gunna chew up the fretboard.... but the polyweb coating cuts down on alot of the roughness, so I'm wondering if that would greatly reduce the wear on my fretboard. Also, what are the brightest flatwounds out there? I've heard alot of good things aboot tapewounds.... what exactly does "tapewound" mean? Can I use them on a standard Fretless Jazz Bass?
