I just bought some Thomastik Powerbass 34" scale strings for my Fender Jazz V 34" scale bass and the B string is too short. The cotton wound part of the string intrudes into the first fret by about 0.25 inch. It seems to sound/ play ok and I've shouted at Thomastic about it but I'm worried about the life of the string and about damaging the nut (singular the bass not mine). It does seem daft that strings dont fit something as standard as a Fender Jazz and they are (or should be) the correct strings. I would have thought that I'd be more likey to have a problem with the G string but thats fine. Any opinions ?
