GHS Strings has announced that their short-scale bass strings are now longer. The updated strings have been designed to work with bass guitars where a little extra length is required, such as those that use a tailpiece or a string-through-body. With the help of Big Country bassist and short-scale expert, Scott Whitley, GHS discovered the optimum winding length for short-scale bass strings to be 32.75-inches long. The result is the same string now in a winding length that’s more conducive to a wider range of short-scale basses.
