Hi everyone - Looking for some guidance. I'm new to the world of flat wounds after 20 years of playing and re-stringing basses. I just had a new fretless Stingray 4 delivered. I've swapped out the stock EB round wounds with Labella 760FLs, long scales. Everything but the G-string. I keep running out of silk wrap with the G-string- I've tried installing two separate LaBella strings ( the original that came with the set and a separate replacement). The first string ended up running out of wrap and slipping on the tuner and I could feel the core slip away. The second is well on its way to doing the same thing. I even kept the second G-string long on purpose just in case I had cut the first too short ( a little longer than stock EB string). But again running out of wrap before anywhere near being in tune. At this point I've cut the string down too much. Is this an issue of scale being off? Stingrays are 34 inch scale so match up with LaBellas definition of long scale. Does the tuner position for an EBMM G-string throw the scale off? Ive got the stock EB G-string on now...but would like to get a flat wound on there...but at $10 a pop for replacements...it's an expensive learning curve!
