    I had this same question not to long ago. The only ones that I know will work are Rotosound RS99 Piano String Design. These have an adjustable ballend that allows for extra length and should work for string through body. The only gauge available is .105 .085 .065 .045 and these are stainless steel. Expect to pay at least $25 a set (discounted). I've never personally tried them but I e-mailed Rotosound about this and was told they would work. Hope this helps.
