    What other strings beside D'Addario XL's in 45-100 guage will fit the stock SX bridge? Im afraid to bore out the E string hole. I don't want to bend the bridge. Any suggestions? :confused:
  2. If the bridge is a fender copy, you can try 45- 105 without modifying it.

    I've been using Rotosound 45-105's on mine when I had the stock bridge. I also had some Ernie Ball Super Slinkys in the same sizes that worked too. On my old SX P bass I tried using Fender 9050 flats 50-115 (I think) that I had to bore out the hole for.
