not trying to hijack the post, but since you mentiones Eudoxas, Jimmy... Did you need to get any changes made after the plain guts to fit the eudoxas on your bass? I'm thinking on getting a set of those or maybe olivs (yeah, right! as soon as I rob a bank! ) But I have Guts and I was wondering about that... OK, back to the weedwacker stuff: I've never tried them, but most of the people that have, love them... so there must be something to them. There are so many kinds of materials strings are made out of: Steel, Nylon, Silk, animal intestines... I don't see why plastic wouldn't work.
