    I've always found that Rotosound strings are real long - the long scale ones anyway!!! I'm always clipping about 6 inches off them (or so) to get 2 - 3 windings on the tuning pegs!

    However, I don't have any strung through body basses - so don't know if these would be good enough for you.:)
