Double ball strings
Amelnick
Want to use double ball and nickel. Got a set of Daddario NYXL and can't quite fit. Seems the bridge does not go far forward enough. Is it adjustable? Any help appreciated. The bass is a 2014 S2.

Not sure what you mean by the "bridge does not go far forward enough". Do you mean the saddles? The saddles are adjustable. Under the string is a very small allen bolt which you loosen and then move it back and forth by hand. That's how you set the intonation. You have to loosen the string first to move the saddle.
Unfortunately for everyone else I own the best Status bass ever built. Pfft

Headed or headless bass?

headless bass. When I turn the knob to loosen the string it does not go far enough to put a new double ball string in.

...I would make sure that the ball on the string retainer end, is totally seated as far down as it can be.

Some string manufacturers appear to make their dubl-ball strings a bit shorter than Status.

Steinberger strings, from what I understand, are shorter than normal and do not fit Status basses.

I heard just the opposite: that Status uses EXACTLY the 'original standard' Steinberger string length.

Some of the Gibson (and other brand) 'steinbergers' are not 'standard steinberger length', though...

Short (pardon the pun) of ordering from Rob at Status, you can't go wrong with the Rotosound Swing Bass RDB66LD strings.
They've worked beautifully on all my Statii.

Did you solve the string length problem?
