Would appreciate knowing if anyone is using Thomastik-Infelds (Powerbass or Jazz) on a 5-string, 35" scale, strings-through-body, with a 3 + 2 headstock (e.g. a 5-string Lakland or 5-string MM, et al). The US distributor for TI was kind enough to tell me that the A string, (string that needs the most length) is 37.5" from ball to start of the silk wrap. That seems like it may be cutting it close, but I could be wrong. Would appreciate hearing about any of your experiences. (FWIW - I use DR's now and they always give you plenty of length, and, I wasn't particularly fond of the Lakland-GHS nickels that came on my Skyline). Thanks for any input.
