I bought a set of Rotosound tapewound strings for my Guild Starfire II bass. Everything was going smoothly until I went to put on the new D string. I inadvertently measured my D string to the G string tuner and cut it too short for the D string tuner . As a short term fix, I installed my old flat wound A string in the D string position. It sounds and plays fine. Fortunately, these tape wounds will work on my Hofner Ignition bass. The cut D string reaches the D string tuner on the Hofner. I ordered another set of Rotosound tape wound strings for my Guild.
