    Hi. I decided it may be time to change the strings on my Warwick Thumb BO 6. Before I do that, I wanted to check which set/guage is usually standard on a Thumb BO 6 when it leaves the factory. I really enjoy the sound and I've had compliments from others when they've heard my Thumb.

    Does a set of Black Label strings go best with this? :)
