: Greetings all! I have a Dean Edge 6 string fretless that came with roundwound strings and I'm trying to replace them with flat wounds. My scale length is 35" which puts me in the "extra long" or "super long" sets of strings. (Not your typical "long scale" for 34" scale basses.) I've checked D'Addario, GHS, Ernie Ball and a host of other sites for a set of 6 string flat wound strings but have come away empty handed. I know I can piece together a set (buy a 4 or 5 string set of flats then add a low B or high C string) but I'd rather avoid that if possible. Does anyone know of a string maker that has a set of 6 string flatwounds for 35" scales in a meduim/medium light gauge (.32-.130 usually) Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! JDP

I had a lot of trouble getting the flat wounds I wanted for my fretless 5. I wanted GHS brite flats, but could not find them as a set in the gauges I wanted, until I found can custom order a set any way you like...they put it together for you and 2 days later....there it is in the old mail box.........peace
