Hello fellow G&L users! I just joined up to ask this so I hope somebody can help me! Here's my sob story. I bought this sweet Orange L-2500 off a guy on e-bay. He had it stringed with all 5 strings through the body, but I don't know what type. The strings were alright, but I figured I'd better go get the bass set up since it was shipped a few hundred miles. I took it to the only place in town that sells G&L figuring they would know how to tune one. I told them that I wanted D'addarios and all strings through the body. It wasn't until I got it home that I noticed the knucklehead put on DR Hi beams, and that the B was through the bridge, since the winding length wasn't long enough to put it through the body. Anyways, I've used them for a while and they're ok, but I miss that B through the body (the most important one IMO!) I just bought a set of Ernie Ball Power Slinky, only to find that none of them work through the body!! I use D'addarios on my guitars, so I think the EXL 160-5 (medium gauge, "long scale") might be right for me. But none of the stores near me stock it, so I'd have to order and don't want to waste my time if they're not going to work. I've seen the photos of some of your basses here (some beauties BTW), and a lot of you have the B through the body so please, what are you using?!? Hope my post isn't too long and boring. Thanks in advance for your help!
