    Hi jieshi,
    This is the Fender link for bass setups. It should get you going. On the Fender, be sure that you wind downward on the tuning pegs to keep good pressure on the nut. Good Luck.

  3. Your bass has a 34" scale. If you're unsure which strings you should buy, ask the salesperson at the music store.
     
  4. Look for ones that say "long scale" or 34" scale. Long scale is by far the most common, so you shouldn't have any problem finding strings that size.
