My main bass is a carvin LB90, with a short stubby 2 by 2 headstock. I find myself continually trying new strings and then once they're off, they're no good to anyone else unless they have a 2 by 2 stubby headstock. Is there a way to string up a bass without cutting at all? Like if I ran the string through the post rather then putting it in the hole, wrapped it around and let the excess poke out, would it be stable? Temporarily at least till I decide if I like them? So if i dont, then I can put them jn the classifieds. This description makes sense in my head but might sound like gibberish. I'm very tired.
