    What brand and gauge of strings are shipped with the Jazz Blacktop Bass with the dual P pickups?

    My best guess is Medium Fender. Just wondering if anyone knows.

    It's funny you asked. When I unboxed mine…as in "unboxed it after it'd been special-ordered directly from Fender"…my E-string had a small kink in it. I was eventually going to grace it with a set of Ernie Ball Cobalt rounds (.45-.100's…my personal gauge of choice), so I don't feel like I got cheated or anything. It's just one of those odd things that comes your way in life.

    If you're thinking of trying out different strings, please share; What kind of sound are you trying to achieve with the Blacktop Jazz, assuming you already have one.
