    Hey all.
    Borrowing a fiver, strings on it suck. Need a suggestion or two for an extra long scale (35.25 inch), low B set, non tapered, flatwound?

    Thanks,
    -J

    LaBella nylon tapewounds? Good right out of the envelope. I have some and like them. Even have a nice slap tone. I have a regular set (not the extra-longs) on a 35" scale, and there is still an easy half-inch left on all strings.
