A very long shot...
Can anyone help my identify the strings on my short scale jaguar?
I'm trying to establish whether or not they are the stock strings, which according to the fender website they are Fender NPS rounds 40-95. Could have been changed by the shop before displaying, not sure.
I really like them but only the E string is dead. If they were all dead, that would be great, but as it is, just sounds odd.
So they are definitely lighter gauge than the 45-105 elixirs that are on my Ibanez.
But they don't feel as light as the 40-95 d'addarios on my Warwick.
Could be 100's I guess? How can I tell without a caliper?
Definitely short scale strings
Definitely nickel plated steel rounds
Ball ends are all brass
Unlikely to be DR, labella, ghs, as those brands aren't that common here, not impossible. We usually get d'addarios (which have coloured ends), Rotos or Ernie balls, never seen short scale strings from those though.
I know it's a long shot but worth a try,
