    Looking to put some tapes on this fretless ABG, and the tapered B is a no-go for a fixed saddle. Anyone have any suggestions for what would work well? Either a tapewound set or some kind of lower tension flats or groundwound. thanks

    PS its a 35" scale 5 string

    I'm pretty sure Labella 760N don't have a tapered B. That's what I use on my Rob Allen, which has a 35" scale and fixed saddle.
