    For sale is a 4 string set of La Bella short scale Low tension flats. I bought these to put on my Epiphone Viola. I cut the E string but realized it was too short for the bass. The Viola needs medium scale strings. All other strings are not touched. These will fit regular 30" scale basses, just not Beatle type basses.

    Price is shipped to CONUS only.

    Can you elaborate on why these are incompatible with beatle basses?

    It's because of how far back on the Beatle bass the bridge sits.

    Here is the cut E string in relation to how much room you have to work with. This is a Gretsch G2202 short scale 30" bass. There is plenty of room to get 3 plus wraps around the E string post. As I said, the other strings are not cut.
