    Default Kona 3 String Walking Bass

    Hello all
    I am trying to source strings for the above instrument. I have not been able to contact Kona Bob the Luthier who created the instrument. They are nylon strings G B D. Any suggestions?
    Thanks for any assitance.

    Life is good, but better with a uke.

    I got these weedwacker strings from eBay for an upright washtub bass, and I expect they’d work on your stick. I’d ask the seller for recommendations on gauges for your tuning and scale length.
