    Hi all - found a set of "orphan" strings on my shelf - flats with lavender silk on both ends. I did have a set of TI's at one point and am wondering if this is them. Definitely not purple but light lavender.

    Thx for the help!

    TI flats have red silk I think. Trying to picture my Fenders in my head...

    I think they're GHS Precision flats.

    Pix would help the most.

    Actually change that! GHS are silked only on the tuner end.

    Maybe Optima Maxima strings? They're kind of purple-ey.

    GHS = purple. Pyramids = lavender.
