    I own a Traben Array Bass and I love it, but I can't find strings long enough for it. It has a long scale neck and string thru design, but with these two features, long scale strings fail to reach the nut before they taper down. I've had to rig the nut, by putting toothpicks under the strings. Are there any longer gauge strings I can use?

    Measure from ball end to nut and ball end to tuning post for the thickest string. Once you have that info you won't be guessing anymore.

  7. You should try extra long DR strings.
    They will give you plenty of length even with string through body :)
