    ...when strung through-body? Looks close to me.

    Or, does anyone know the minimum ball-to-silk length needed to clear it?

    Thanks for any help.

    Shouldn't be a problem.

    So, you've done it?

    These look like they're going to be about 1/2" short. I don't want to ruin yet another set of new strings in a futile attempt to string this thing with anything but 8250s. :meh:
  4. Don't know about the 7150s, but I've got D'Addario EXL-165s (.045"-.015") strung through-body on my 2008 American Series Jazz, and they are long enough....barely. The G string was EXACTLY the right length.

    I have some of them, too and they look like they'd be too short. :meh:

    I'm beginning to believe that wrapped length is inconsistent in string production and that's why the manufacturers never list that spec.

    I restrung the new Yamaha I got and wrap on the E string in the set I used for that just cleared the nut by a little over 1/16".

    Considering the price of bass strings, there really needs to be a more reliable way of figuring out if they're going to work.

    Hi I have a 03 US Fender jazz and the 7150's, 7250's and 7350's all fit thru the body and are long enough. I prefer the Nickel 7250's the best with regular wound E string over the 8250's. I didn't really like the 7150's and found them a little weaker volume and tone wise. The 7350's are stainless and they are on my Geddy Lee Jazz, a little more aggressive.
