I'm not very familiar with bass....but I bought a cheap one from a pawnshop awhile ago and it needs new strings. I bought a set, but they were to thick to fit into the nut and to long for the neck, I'm guessing I have a shortscale bass? where can I buy strings for a shortscale if so?

the nut may have been just too thick for the nut.

measure it from the nut to the bridge. if it is about 34" or so, you have a normal bass

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

You have to cut the strings aswell, I'm pretty sure they don't make short-scaled bass strings. They will always be to long for the neck right out of the package.
