Hi everyone, I know this has been discussed several times but I just saw this video from 1983 on his instagram: He says that he used flatwounds on the first two Chic LPs and then switched to rounds “for that slap sound”. He did those first two albums on a Fender right? His Musicman appears to have strings with black silks on the video (could be dark blue too), dunno what brand that would be, several people have stated that he didn’t change the factory strings and that GHS was Musicman’s supplier. Which would mean he never used flats at all on the stingray? Hope this info shines a light on a decade long debate.
