    So what strings do you guys like for this bass. and what strings fit with no problems.
     
  2. I just use normal DR Marcus Miller strings on my short scale bass and cut them to length.
    Put a bend in the string first to stop it from unravelling.
    I like the new string sound and I haven't noticed any loss of brighteness or string life by cutting them.
    Alembic make short scale strings but they're a bit hard to get in the UK.
