    Can't find this info. They feel tighter than Fenders which are round core so I'm thinking EBs are hex core. Does anyone know for sure? Just curious.

    Thx,

    Um, this is a longshot, but maybe because their website says they're hex core?

  8. I think you are right Jimmy, even though your links do not refer to the bass strings
