    I recently picked up a G&L Tribute L2500, and I am interested in trying some TI flats. Does anyone know which set will work for stringing through the body? They have a long scale and super long scale set. Thanks!

    I ran a super long scale set thru body without issue. Make sure you go thru body on the 2500. They only have two screws holding the bridge down.

    With the super long set was the length of the wrapping okay with the nut? Were there any issues with the bends? Thanks!

    TI strings are made long to begin with so they work for stringing through body on a 34" scale bass or though bridge on a 35" scale bass. You only need the super long if you are going to be stringing through body on a 35" scale bass. I believe the L2500 is a 34" scale bass so you would want the regular scale JF345 set. The super long would be way to long.

    You are correct, it is 34". The JF345 set is quite a bit cheaper, so that is great. Thanks for the help!

    Are you stringing through the body?

    The regular 34" strings should work fine on the L2500. I haven't tried them on that bass yet, but I've used them on my 35" Turner and they have a LOT of extra length past the nut.

    Give it a try and let me know how they sound... I've been thinking about it, but the set I have is reserved for the Turner and I don't want to drop $65 on strings I may not like on that bass.

    Love the TI Flats on my Pbass, though...
