Does anyone know what strings came on the Artcore AGB140 in 2004 and what length strings are needed? Though it says 34" scale, which it is from bridge to nut, the strings have to be longer to reach the saddle which is an inch or more behind the bridge. So did Ibanez use extra long strings for these? If so, what brand? I know the modern replacement is only 30", so that doesn't help me much.

Thanks for whatever help anyone can give.

We likely used some sort of generic factory string and not a specific brand. As for the length, you should look for strings that are "Long Scale". Generally speaking, "long scale" strings are geared towards basses with a 34" scale length. Also, these were likely the string gauges used on that model:

.045 - .065 - .085 - .105

hope this helps,

Thanks, Bill.

I strung her up with D'Addario XL 34" long scale and there was no problem with the strings being long enough to go through the nut. I think I'll rig her up with some half-wounds though for a bit mellower sound.

Regards.
