    What, if any, problems would there be by using strings ment for a string thru body on a bass with a string thru bridge?
    Thanks, Danny
  2. There should not be any problems. The only difference from that perspective is string length.
    I always get a little nervous when I put strings through the body, and I see the angle that the string makes as it curves onto the bridge (I fear snapping sounds!) :(
