    I bought this great old Gibson Ripper a while back and it has these rather marvelous flatwound strings on it. Heavy-ish guage with brilliant green silk at the ball end and no silk up top. Any ideas?

    Looks like a set of old Fender Flats to me.

    I'll third that as a past owner of Fender 9050 flats .... personally prefer the 45-95s! Great strings, and relatively cheap too.

    I fourth that as a current user of Fender flats. I like 'em and they are quite inexpensive.
