I have flats on my Musicmaster and can't stand them. i dont know what brand they are, they were put on when it was beign refurbished in a shop (i asked for flats, not having experience with them). Well flat vs. round debate aside, what's a good round shortscale string for this bass? i dont know about gauges, so just just whatever you like and please try to be specific about the type and where to get them. ive just ordered a seymour duncan for this bass so im eager to get this upgrade in gear! Thanks a lot!
