    I've re-bought a bass that i've sold a couple of years ago! - Fender P 5 American Strd - the guy don't remember what strings he put on it... they are dead but i rrrrreally love them.

    Can you help me on this one?!
    Roundwound
    Grey "clotch" on top,
    Silver rings - but a bit more "graphite"... so dark silver.
    Stainless Steel, 5 Strings sets...
    Big gage

    so! they're no DR, D'addarios...
    Dunlop? Rotosound?
    thanks for helping me, here's the pics.

    You sure they're steel? Those sure look like 8250s to me. If the B and E are tapered, they're 8250s for sure.

    The grey silk hints to me they're Fender 8250. These are the strings the Precision V comes with, and I've read these strings 'work best' on this bass.
