Hi, In my search for "the perfect string" I replaced the stock strings my basses came with (after about six months) to DR FatBeams. I like them, but their winding length is 37.5" so the E on the Classic Vibe and the B on the Affinity V do not taper down before winding on the tuning peg. On my Affinity Jazz the thickness of the un-tapered B string around the tuning peg made tuning and intonation a problem. I finally got tired and replaced the B string with a .130 D'Addario XL Nickel Would (using a .130 string is tip #62 on Gary Willis' 101 Bass Tips book). I like how that B sounds now. I've been looking at the original Fender strings my basses came with (Fender 7250ML Nickel-Plated Steel Long Scale 45-100 on the Classic Vibe, Fender 7250-5M Nickel-Plated Steel Long Scale 5-String 45-125 on the Affinity Jazz V). I also have been considering the D'Addarios XL Nickel Wound for my basses. One thing I've looked all over but can't find (except for the D'Addarios) is string tension data. I'm concerned that, my Squires being budget basses, the necks are not up to the (potentially) higher tension of different (higher gauge) strings and that it will cause the necks to warp. Does anybody know the string tension data for the string brands I mentioned above (Fender 7250s, DR FatBeams, D'Addario I already know). How much of a concern this is on the Squier basses listed: CV60, AJV? Does the .130 B make sense? Thank you for your comments.
