Thanks for this feedback. As it so happens I've got 2 sets of Savarez Cantiga normal tension Bass strings on the way from SBM myself. Also have 2 sets of the Oasis GPX HT coming with them. Looks like we both play very similar models of Cordobas that sound sweet with this type of set up.

Still hoping to find some reasonably priced polished basses to try too...
