    Greetings, lovers of flats. I have four sets here, all used but in good shape.

    First up is a 4-string set of LaBella Low Tension Flexible Flats, Long Scale, cut for Fender 4-in-line. $25 shipped CONUS - SOLD!

    Next, a 4-string set of Chrome flats, Long Scale, cut for 2x2 headstock. $15 shipped CONUS - SOLD!

    Then, Rotosound Long Scale flats, 4-string, also cut for 2x2 headstock. I got these in a lot of TI flats and never used them. (These were previously advertised as TIs, but I'm told they are Rotosound. I didn't know - got them in a lot and never used them.) $20 shipped CONUS

    Lengths for the Rotosounds (ball end to wrap around tuning pegs):

    E: 38"
    A: 41"
    D: 41"
    G: 38.5"

    Finally, I've got a virtually brand-new set of Super Long Scale TI flats, 5-string, that I got for a fanned-fret Ibanez. They were installed on the bass and cut to fit its 2x3 headstock. The current lengths from ball end to tuning peg wrap-arounds currently are as follows (there is, of course, more length in the coils that went around the pegs and the end that went down into the peg):

    D: 39.5"
    A: 42"
    E: 41"
    B: 40"

    The good news is that the bridge saddles on the Ibby allow the string to lay flat, so there is virtually none of that annoying "pre-bend" you get from a new string. So, if the lengths work for you, there are little-played stings that will save you a lot of money over a new Super-Long 5-String set. $69 shipped CONUS - SOLD!

    If anyone wants to order more than one set I'll knock $5 off the price of EACH SET in the lot.
