    Comments about Fender 5250XL Nickel-Plated Steel Short Scale Bass Strings - Extra Light:

    I use the 95 and 75 on an Ibanez 8 string guitar with a tune-o-matic bridge. I did have to have some custom drilling done on the 7th string socket on the bridge to accomodate a bass string ball end, but the strings go straight through the bridge, fit well on the nut, and fit nicely through the tuning peg with enough space for 2-3 wraps. FYI the other 6 strings are Fender Heavy 52-12s. The guitar is dropped whole step with the 8 matching the "G" chord and the 7th matching the "C" chord: low F Bb D G C F A D. This set of short scale extra light bass strings matches very well with the Fender heavies on top.

    Bought these strings for three different short scale basses I own. No issues. You are not buying the best strings available here but are getting a complete and usable product.
