    As a matter of interest, i am wondering what brand, and gauge of strings people have been using and found best for this guitar?

    This information will be extremely helpful in understanding what people have had the most success with.

    Mine came from Japan with some flatwounds on it. I don't know which brand, but I am now a flatwound convert. I love the tone on this combination.

    DR Black Beauties on mine. They're fantastic.

    I had DR Hi beams on it before this set. Those are great strings too, but i like the feel of the Black Beauties better. Looks wicked to.

    i have an arodyne and love it :D havent got around to changing strings from stock yet but im going for flats
  12. I've played one in a store and was quite impressed! dunno much about the strings, i'm guessing they were the stock strings though. Fantastic bass!
  13. Restrung mine with TI Jazz Flats. :hyper:

    Playability, tone, feel is absolutely incredible.
