Is it safe to throw Rotosounds Swing Bass strings on my Yamaha rbx170?

    First off let me say that if this bass had "Fender" stamped on the headstock it would cost three times as much. I think its excellent for rock n roll and blues. I bought it for 90 bones and I'm stoked with the quality and tone of this bass.

    Can I throw Rotosound Swing Bass strings on this bad boy or will it mess it up?

    Put whatever strings you want on it. At most it may need a truss rod adjustment depending on the tension of the new strings.

    I just wasn't sure if it would mess up the neck. I've only changed strings on a bass once. I usually have someone else do it for me or I don't change them at all.

    Thanks for the advice

    Good luck with your playing
