    I found a set of flats laying around I must have purchased when i was into my "try all the flats" phase. But I can't remember what brand they are - I believe they have to be DR or Rotos. Anyone have any ideas? They could be Fender but I thought they were black and red.

    What ever they are they definitely sound good on my T-Bird.:D
  2. Until recently Fender flats had green silk at the end. They have recently changed manufacturers and I am not sure about them now, but I believe they still have the green silk, although it may or may not be the same shade.

    I have a new pair of Fender 9050mls that have green silks, sounds similar to yours.

    Yep 9050s - after reading another post I guess they're AKA Fender Rebar Exercise Strings prone to tendonitis if you're not careful. Actually, on my T-Bird they definitely have a lot of tension and changed my action quite a bit, but they sure sound good!

    Sound like old Fender 9050's. They're my favorite. If you ever decide don't want them, I'll buy the set off you.
