    My bass player, Rob, recently bought a really nice G&L bass, fitted with D'Addario strings, which he really likes.

    He wants to stick with the gauge that's on there, but hasn't a clue what they are. Is it possible to work out the string gauges from the colours on the ball-ends?

    I don't think so. The different colors are only to tell you which string you've got (E A D G) beacause they put them all in a little bag rather than separate envelopes. So, the E ball end will be the same colour no matter what gauge the set is and the A, D, and so on. Sorry!
