Strings For 32" Scale

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by BulbousMoses, Jan 3, 2013.


  1. I'm thinking of picking up one of the new Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Bass Specials...nice looking and sounding instruments. Will I be limited in string choice given that this is a 32" scale bass?

    That all depends on where you look!

    There are literally a ton of options for "Medium Scale" you just may not have as wide a variety of gauge selection.

    However, really the only string that NEEDS to be medium scale is the E string, from there you can put on any Long Scale string really...

    But you can get NPS Rounds / Stainless Rounds / Flats / Pressurewound / Half-Rounds. You will be fine! Enjoy that new bass!
     
  3. Thanks for the reply. Looks as though I have more options than I thought. I might give the GHS Pressurewounds a try....

    Good choice. There are a bunch of threads covering the Pressurewounds.

    Overall smooth punchy tone. Reduced fingernoise, great feel and flexibility in both playability and tone!
