    Does anyone know where I might be able to find a set of heavy short scale steels? I'm talking .110 for the E string. I like the shorter fretboard for my left hand but I've used .105 strings for my E on long scales for years so my right hand hits a little hard sometimes and I'm looking to help curb that. Will also be open to suggestions for nickel strings that fit the description but steels are what I'm really interested in. Thanks!

    Check bassstringsonline.com. They have an excellent assortment of short scale strings. I use the LaBella Deep Talkin' Steels on my SG, in a slightly lower gauge. They may have the gauge you want in a variety of string brands. Definitely worth checking out.
