    What is the thickest set of strings that will fit properly into a precision bass without modifying the nut or saddles?

    I only use flatwound if anyone has any suggestions.

    Standard guages are 45-105, you could probably go to a 110 without recutting the nut, but it may effect tuning stability a bit.

    Labella flats in a .105 guage have lots of tension, I'm not sure why you'd want to go tighter than that. Are you detuning?

    Labella 105s hey.

    Yes I tune down to C# if that helps.
