"Another reason also is that I have build baritone 29" lenght scale and I liked way it sounds so I have decided to give bass try, also because I always wanted to try to play 12 string bass like ones that Hamer makes, but never had chance."

"Thanks guys, those informations are very usefull, and JL, there is reason I'm looking for specific kind of sound, and of course for experimenting sake, sound that can be described as piano played with hammer, only drawback is that only one tone…"

"Is there a reason you need 100 cm (39 1/2 in) scale specifically?  You could reverse engineer it, get the normal electric bass guitar strings, lay out the parts on your benchtop, then decide how much you can push the scale length out and…"

"If you make it a short scale bass(28" to 30"), you could use strings for the Fender Bass VI and Baritone guitar strings to mix-match what you need."

""Extra Long Scale" bass strings are for a 38" scale bass. Those might work for a 39.4" scale, esp because you decide where tuners go. I don't have any on hand, but you can find them on juststrings.com. 34" standards…"

Have you have heard about 12 string basses like ones that Hamer makes, they have tripled every string so you have Eee Aaa Ddd Ggg strings on them, for example E is for lowest string and ee are 2 strings tuned octave higher, and so on.So my plan is to build an instrument with string scale length of 39.40 ¨ (100 cm), that is part that shares similarities with upright bass, but it will have only three strings on it witch will be tuned to Bbb lowest string is B0 and other two are B1 an octave…See More

"Dejan hi, some news about your project? Did you notice the video Mr, Speal did about an F7 tuning? http://www.cigarboxnation.com/forum/topics/jazzy-f7-tuning-for-4-string-cigar-box-guitar For the opportunity to play minor chords I still prefer…"

Moritz Voegeli replied to Dejan Nišić's discussion Any suggestion on 4 string open Gmaj7 tuning baritone CBG?
"Dejan hi, yes it's low to high, G-bB-D-F in your case. I'm not used playing with a slide, so open chords were not relevant for my decision, rather the possibilities this tuning offers for narrow chord patterns on the low frets of a very…"

Dejan Nišić replied to Dejan Nišić's discussion Any suggestion on 4 string open Gmaj7 tuning baritone CBG?
"Hello Moritz, is that D-F-A-C low to high? Do you have any audio or video of this CBG, it seems to offer few more possible combinations than my intended tuning, it may be a right answer for my CBG-baritone project, So if I use G as starting low…"

Moritz Voegeli replied to Dejan Nišić's discussion Any suggestion on 4 string open Gmaj7 tuning baritone CBG?
"For overlong scale four-string CBGs I ended up with a similar tuning but with a flat third and flat seventh (D-F-A-C) which allows for very narrow patterns for most chord types. Whether you prefer G-7 or Gmaj7 depends too on the tonality of the…"
