    Here are my experiences;
    My 2000 MIM sounded great with Fender 9050ML flats on it, when the stock pickups were in it. Since going with the DiMarzio ultrajazz pickups, the strings I like best for it are TI jazz flats. I used D'addario XL's for awhile. It sounded good, but I didn't like the hi-fi tone too much. The TI's seem to be the best combination on this bass for me.

    My 2002 MIM fretless has DiMarzio Model J's. I use D'addario chromes with this. The XL's sounded good, but a little too trebly. Since I liked the XL's, I tried the Chromes. Bingo! To my ears, the best combination with this bass.

    Surprisingly, I like the XL's (my favorite roundwound BTW)best on my Pbass deluxe, with Nordstrand P/J pickups. I guess somebody had to be different, go figure :bag:
