Question...I just bought a new ABI (yes, I'm in love, grin. yes, I'm grinning ear to ear like a fool every time I bring it out, grin. yes, everyone who looks at it is sooooo jealous, grin.) and I'm wondering about whether or not I HAVE to use strings that have a tapering B, E, and A string at the bridge. If so, why? If not then, cool. I love this bass Sheldon, it's soooooo cool (and finding out that the FD 3 pick ups were split coils...no wonder I love it...I'm an old p-bass fan...my first bass is a '73 Fender p-bass). And it plays like a dream, too. Anyway...for those of you who are curious...the B string from a set of DR Extra Life Black Beauties...is long enough to fit the ABI...assuming it can take a non-tapered string. Thanks for the help.

Hi Greg, I'm glad you're loving the new bass. There's no reason why you can't use a non tapered string. You'll need to lower the saddle screws to compensate for the increased diameter. The change in tone will be a personal thing.
