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

    Best regards,

    They look like Labella flatwounds to me.

    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"?

    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...
