What strings are this?

  1. I did buy a Fender Jazzbass '78 frettless.
    I want to know what branch/type strings are attached.

    They look like Labella flatwounds to me.
  3. Thanks for the reply.

    I thing it's Rotosounds swingbass nickel but i'am not sure at all -:)

    That medium blue color is found on Roto nickels, I believe. You're in Europe, so that is very likely.

    Best string silk color, imo.

    Or, should that be "colour"?

    Nice bass. I love the black on black with the white pick guard outline
  11. Thanks Vinnie6!

    It's a great sounding bass too.
    I did add a soundclip of a song i've been working on for a saxophone-player to make a new arrangement.
    I did use my "new" bass for it...
