You cannot always tell the strings you need just by the scale length of your bass. Some basses are strung through the body, and the distances from the bridge to where the ballend locks in or the distance from the nut to the pegs are not standard on all guitars. The best way to figure out the correct strings for sure is to:
1) Assuming your bass has strings on it, mark the lowest pitched string (while on your bass) at the nut with a marker.
2) Remove the string.
3) Measure the distance from the inner edge of the ball end to the mark you just made.
4 ) Record this length, and refer to the following chart:
Length String Scale Required
Up to 32″ DAddario Short
32 to 34 DAddario Medium
34 to 36 DAddario Long
36 to 38 DAddario Super Long
