Hello - New poster looking for help

  1. Hello,

    New poster (n00b).

    I happened across a Fretless Fender bg-29 Acoustic bass and I need to get new strings for it.. My local music store does not carry Short-scale flatwounds for acoustic basses....

    Is there such a thing as "acoustic bass strings" or can I just use some short scale electric strings... If I don't want to go for flatwounds, what other options are there?

    Thanks in advance.

  3. I've got one of these basses and I use the standard length TI acoustic bass strings, just trim of the excess, seems to be okay for me

    They seem to last a while too
