The Gretsch Broadkaster is a short scale bass (30") but due to the floating bridge and trapeze tailpiece, it actually takes medium scale strings, so I ordered some LaBella Deep Talkin' Bass "Beatle/Hofner" scale. However, the tailpiece block is slanted so the low E on this set is actually 1/4' too short! Grrr! I've searched all over the internet but can't find a definitive answer for what strings fit on this bass. (Looking for flatwound strings only. I think the original round wounds are Pyramid brand). Anyone have one of these basses and advice on what flatwound sets fit on it? Thanks.
