determining a string guage

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by CJ_Marsicano, Jun 3, 2003.


  1. hi,

    I have a fender 5-string custom jazz bass that I've had since 1996. I've _never_ changed the strings on it and they still sound good, but there is going to come a time when they'll need to be changed. How does one determine exactly what gauge strings is on a bass?

    Get some calipers and measure the strings.
