    I remember reading in an interview article somewhere when Flea said the last time he bought strings was in the '80s. Now he only uses strings that come with his modulus so I guess you should find out what kind of bass strings modulus string onto their bass. Maybe I could be wrong but I know I've read that somnewhere correct me if Im wrong!

    Ahh thats the one. Thanks George. When he said he doesn't know which string he uses now and that he hadn't buy any strings for the last ten years I'm assuming he either uses the stock strings that come with the modulus or his bass tech strings a set that complements his style of play and the way he wants the bass to sound. But of course its all an assumption. I guess the only person who knows what bass strings he uses is his bass tech.
