TI Jazz Flats on a 35" thru-body?

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by scott_barrett, Mar 31, 2004.


  1. Does anyone know if you can put the TI's on a 35" scale bass and still string them through the body? Do they even make a super long scale set?

    Thanks!

    Or rather 'no and yes' in that order. 34" scale TIs won't fit on a 35" scale bass strung though the body, but they DO make a 36" scale set that will fit just fine if I remember correctly.

  3. Yes you can and they do make a 36" scale.
