    ... and I recommend Status Graphite "Hotwire" strings. Both of my headless basses use their flatwounds. They ship worldwide:

  5. try www.musicyo.com
    If your bass has the same scale as their Steinbergers you should be able to get a good price. Shoot them an email.

    I'll ditto HeavyDuty's recommendation for the Status Hotwires. I use them on my Status S2000 and my Hohner B2ADB and think they're excellent.

    I'm interested in hunting for a B2V, but no one can give me the neck width at the zero fret, and the string spacing at the bridge. If you have a moment, and don't mind throwing a ruler across them, I'd be very grateful.
