Default My low end bass

I have a Carvin LB75 that is giving me trouble.
I know it is not a Smith and putting Smith strings on it is a lot like putting lipstick on a pig.
The Smith strings greatly improve the tone of the bass.
I think the overall B string length should be around 37".
The scale length is 34".
I measured from the ball to the nut because that is what Ken said to do.
I just want to know if a Smith low B string is available for this bass.
I don't have any problems with the A-> G strings.
Someday I will get a Smith and this issue will be moot, but for now...

By the way, measure from the nut to the bridge saddles.
