    I'm curious. What kind of strings are original equipment on the following basses. Most of them market their own brand (eg: F Bass, Modulus, Smith)but I would like to know what the strings really are...Dr Hi Beams? D'Addario Slowounds? etc, etc.

    GHS is probably the biggest producer of OEMs.
