  1. looking for some tapers, or something partially flat,(half rounds??)my question is, the bass is a fender usa deluxe 2012 and I'm looking to use the string thru body method, I picked up a pair and they wouldn't fit, to short,Im going to order them off line, I did some searching but nothing really fits my criteria

    Keep in mind that generally tapered strings and through body do not go together.

    GHS and Labella tapers 'may' be long enough.
    Mark a string (strung thru body) at the saddle, then remove and measure to see how much taper you need.
