Please let me know what yall use on your 2500's. I know this has been mentioned in a thread but forgot where. I just wanted to consolidate the info here. Of course I had to take off the stock ones, and yes, I had to cut the cloth thread stuff at top off my usual Dean Markleys SR2000's to get the B string to go thru body hole, then it was too short for the core of the taper to go beyond the saddle so I am top strung at the moment, would like to go back thru body with taper-wrapping if possible... Thanks in advance!
