    I want to change to flatwounds and I guess there has been an issue with short scale strings fitting the bass. Long scale are probably too long - should I order some medium scale or has someone found some short scales that fit?

    I had the same question - anyone ever reply to you?

  4. First, follow the instructions HERE to determine what "winding length" your bass requires.

    Then refer to the chart HERE to find out who makes strings that fit your bass properly.

    Yes, definitely contact Jason. Because of the odd backlength, Jason can recommend specific sets that will fit Starcaster and Coronado basses
