    Hey Everyone,

    I recently defretting my first bass, a really crappy Fender imitation, and I wanted to get new strings for it because the strings on it now are aweful. I want to go for a jazzy sound on this thing. Do you know any strings that would help me with that. I also don't want to damage the fretboard much so I want to go with flatwounds. I don't know if that is a bad choice or not for jazz. Any help would be appreciated.
