These are the best sounding strings I have played to date, and they came on my Squier Jaguar SS from the factory. I replaced them with Rotosound 66's. Bad mistake. The Fender strings run circles around the Rotosounds.

These strings are very specific to certain guitars, eg. the Fender Mustang Bass. Just about no other short-scale string fits a Mustang, and medium-scales are too long (I've tried). So if you're disappointed because these strings are not quite the right length for your short-scale bass, don't despair. They're great strings, but you need to find the right short-scales for your guitar. It took me many attempts at different strings to finally understand this for my Mustang.

Put them on my Fender Bullet Bass (1982) 30" short scale. Sound great!

Too short!!

Picked these up for my dad's Hofner restoration project, and guess what? The voiced length stops short of the nut on a 30'' scale! Ridiculous! I won't be messing with these ever again.

Strings are strings...What I wanted was the service...I selected what I wanted (and you have/had them) and they were reasonably priced and promptly delivered.

I can make no judgment as to what other people might want as per their string needs, but you provided what I needed...I will again order when I again require strings.

I hope this helps.

Respectfully,

Gerry Damiano

Short Scale Bass 5250's

 

"Made for 30" scale basses like the Fender MusicmasterÒ Bass, these nickel-plated steel strings will give your bass high output and great tone. The nickel plating on the strings is slightly softer than your frets, eliminating premature fret wear. These strings sound great on all short-scale basses."
