Longer than Long Scale?

    I've acquired a Music Man String Ray Bass circa early 1980s.

    The strings go all the way through the body, so a long string length is needed. I tried Rotosound Swing Bass 66LC ("Long Scale"). But, these strings are too short for the Sting Ray Bass.

    So, who makes strings longer than Rotosound's Long Scale?

    Thanks for any replies to this post!

    C'mon, is that supposed to be an answer??

    String gauges are always specified, but I have never seen any strings with length specifications, other than "long" or "short".

    Therefore, I am looking for someone who has an 80's Music Man Sting Ray Bass and can tell me what brand and model of strings will fit.

    Please, no glib or sarcastic answers! I'm just looking for information. Thank you very much.
