    Changing the flats on my Jazz Bass and looking at these Deep Talking Labella’s. What’s the proper scale length for a Jazz Bass?

    34" is the scale length of a Fender Jazz Bass.

    I just put LaBella Deep Talkin. Nylon tape wound flats on both my P and J Fenders. All I can say is WOW! Phenomenal sound and feel. No fret noise and low tension make these perfect for me!

    I know we're not supposed to think this way, but you can put flats on and maybe never have to buy or change strings again. Good for the starving artist. (I started out on flats in 1964, changed to rounds in the 80's because everybody else did, but never did really like the zing. I went back to Labella 760FL's in the 90's and I'm back home where I always wanted to be).
