I purchased on of the new Artcore vintage basses and I want to replace the strings. Do I need short scale or regular scale strings for this bass? Thanks.

This bass has a 30.3" scale length with a little extra room behind the bridge, so a set of medium scale strings is recommended. These are usually about 34-35" long.

Hope this helps,

Yes, medium scale strings are likely what you want for this bass. For the record, LaBella and Pyramid make "Beatle-bass" strings, specifically made for the Hofner violin-style bass. I know for a fact that the Pyramid flats in this style are a perfect fit for the AGB200. (Edit: Except the ball ends are a little small for the Ibanez tailpiece, but easily fixed.)
