It's my own fault for having bought a dingwall bass with a 37 inch B. The fanned fret idea works realluy well for me, but it limits the range of strings available

string lengths

I've been very happy with the smith slick rounds on a dingwall bass, except that they aren't long enough. The Dingwall has fanned frets and a scale length that runs from 34 on the G string to 37 on...
