    Hi, I was recently looking for strings for a build of mine, which is a 5-string fretless model, with a 33" scale. I'm planning to string it up with flatwound strings with a high C, but to be honest, can't really find a set in such a configuration available. I haven't had a problem with finding roundwounds (like the Fodera H0gh-C medium set), but flats are non-existent for some reason. Am I missing something, or is such a config highly unusual?

    Tonewise, I'm looking for a rather woody character (being used to a TI Jazz Flats or La Bellas). I would appreciate any input or recommendation if there is a set around that would do the job.

    4 string medium scale set and a long scale single high c. Long scale c will work as it's so thin. Only la bella makes a medium scale high c and really you can use any...
