    I need help to find strings for this bass
    (Burns 6 strings Split Sound Bass).
    Tried the Ernie Ball baritone strings but they were too short.
    Thanks!

    Hi noisetree.

    What's this 'VI's scale length?

    TB member Bassman62 would know about getting strings for your bass guitar. I believe that he had the right-handed version of this instrument.

    Check out post # 429.

    Thanks for the reply.
    I can´t find a "tape-measure" at home but it is shorter than
    my 34" Sadowsky.
    Kind regards,

    And I think that this bass is missing some parts on the bridge...
     
  5. I'm beginning to wonder if Bassman62 was mistaken about his own instrument... There was a Split Sound Guitar that looked almost identical to the Split Sound Six String Bass, and it seems noisetree has the true bass version being that it has a 30-inch scale length. The Fender Bass VI 5350 set should fit it.
