Stupid taper-wound question

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by anthowl, Mar 5, 2010.


  1. okay, i just got bought a set of strings
    that are really nice but the E is Taper-wound and
    on the back it says something about it being 'especially designed for Fender's string-through-the-body basses'.

    my fender is not string-thru. can i still use them? they're very cool strings.
     
  2. yes.
     
  3. I'll bet you can still use them unless for some strange the tapered part is too long. Taperwound just makes intonation on the big strings easier. I use a tapered B and love it.
     
  4. you use a tapered B on a non string-thru bridge? okay, that makes me feel better. woo!
    this strings are fantastic.
