Fender 8250 5M
When they stopped making the "old" 8250's I bought a bunch because I don't like the new 8250's (they don't fit right, the taper is too close to the ball end and they feel and sound different).
Any suggestions and what I can use to get that old 8250 sound and feel? I play a 2008 MIA Standard Jazz 5 and I like to string through the HM bridge.
I was thinking Sunbeams, but they are not tappered. The Dunlops are not tappered either.
The old 8250's were round core and lasted a long time, they had a sweet midrange that I just can't find any nickel plated strings that match the specs.
