    I've been using the stock string for my Roscoe Beck, and I absolutely love them. .135 B is ultra fat and tight, and they ring on and on. Plenty of life. Nickle round steel I believe. I'm no string expert, and there are TONS of posts about strings...I was just curious if anyone else's ears/fingers have fallen for these strings. TOp it off...about $20/set.

    I'm going to need some new ones on my MIM Deluxe Jazz V; they sound like a good deal at 20 USD. Are these the taperwound set?

    yup, B and E are tapered. THe rest are not.

    I think you'll dig them if you dig Nickle strings.
