    Anyone know what kind of strings they use on the G&L L-2000 bass guitars? I need to get new ones and love what it comes with.

    I believe they have used SIT Nickel Powerwounds in the past, not sure if they still do or not. At any rate, SIT does make good strings at a good price.

    SIT has "G&L" string sets that are made to a specific winding length. They are based on the Power Wound Nickel bass string formula.


    In short, they are a 38" winding length ball to taper. The 5-String set has a Low-B string with a 3" taper suitable for thru-body stringing.

    Available from any authorized SIT string dealer

    All the new G&Ls I've seen in my local shop have D'Addario XLs on them.

    Check the colour of the ball ends on the strings you have on there that you really like. You can find them tucked into little holes at the end of the bridge.

    D'Addario EXL170's are green, black, red, gold. If they are something else post the colors or better yet a photo, and someone will most likely recognize them.
