Strings HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for 5 string Fenders.
Just wanted to put this out there: I've been using several different types of strings trying to find good ones for my 5 string jazz to give it a nice tight B string while maintaining a consistent sound quality throughout the strings (ie: some strings had boomy bass and trebly highs)
The strings I just got are D'Addario XL Nickel Wound EXL165-5s. They have regular light tops and medium bottoms, and they are fantastic. The B string on my 34" Fender Jazz is now as tight as the BTBs that I have used.
