    I've been very happy with Status Graphite strings. They sell direct from their website, and ship quickly.

    MusicYo also carries strings, but I'd stay away from the cheapies.

    I've been running Status Graphite flats on the one I defretted, and GHS Pressurewounds on the other. I'll probably try the Status version of the Pressurewounds when I run out of GHS sets - I think they make them.

    La Bella makes officially licensed Steinberger strings. You can get stainless roundwound, tapewound, and flatwound in double ball end. has them. I've never dealt with them, but I think they're OK.
