    Looking to get a set of TI flats for a fretless bass. It is 35" scale. The TI JF345's are for a 34" scale, the JF365's are for a 36" scale, since I fall between at 35" I am wondering which would fit best. I don't want a gob of string around the tuner post but I sure don't want to be short either. It has a regular top load Hipshot bridge so no worries about going through the body.

    Anyone out there use these on a 35" scale bass? I am trying to avoid a expensive mistake.

    Thanks,

    You need to measure your instrument ball to nut. ...

    Ball to nut less than 37" use JF345

    Greater use JF365

    Excellent, I am waiting for confirmation of my VIP status from bassstringsonline.com to see what the damages might be for a set or two of flatties.
