    Hi there,
    I've been experimenting with different Sad gauges on my bass (MS5) and I've came up with the "perfect" set (for me). 45-60-80-100-130. The 130 is the Perfect strings for a Sadowsky bass (no doubt: clear, focus all the way across the neck and the "E" note at the 5th fret sounds very close to the open "E"), but I like the feel of a lite set for the others. And because I have a fairly low action, I prefer a stiffer G string (you can dig in a little more without choking it).
    The problem is Sadowsky would "put together" a custom set only if I buy at least 10 sets of them (and looks like they would be cheaper, something like $25 a set)..... I change strings every two/three months, so I was wondering if there'is somebody interested to share.... :ninja:

    [edit: I was forgetting, stainless steel]
