Gretsch G5265 Jet Baritone

  1. FYI, LaBella baritone strings and the Ernie Ball silhouette bass strings do not fit the Gretsch G5265 Jet Baritone. Both are too short.

    Any ideas on what strings might?

    Oh. And, um, don't try to tune the factory strings B-B...

    Wouldn't hurt to list scale length and how far it needs to travel from ball end to nut, and what tuning you are after.
  3. I was hoping to hear from existing owners who have had success. The scale is 29.75.

    I'd like to tune B-B. Thanks
