    So I got new strings for my bass 5 string bass and the B String isn't fitting into the slot!
    The gauge 130 I don't know standard gauge size for 5 string basses
    did i do something wrong?
    Is the thinner part of the string suppose to go in it?

    Please help I'm really depressed right now

    Pics may help, but...

    There's a chance the B nut slot is too narrow for the 130. This can be remedied by a skilled tech in about 10 minutes. You can probably pull it off yourself but I'm guessing you don't have much experience in this arena. Better safe than sorry...get some help....and a Happy Meal for the depression.
