    So I bought this 67 Hofner a while back and it came strung with these flats with bright green thread-see pic. I've searched but can't figure out what brand they might be and man do they feel great. Anyone have a clue? Sorry if this has been covered and I missed it. Thanks. image.

    Interesting! Does fender make a Hofner style string-tapered thin after the nut to fit the tuning peg?

    I'm not sure. Are the balls colored?

    Nope. I've looked around, fender has green thread. Pyramids have dark green. I've heard that Hofner 'contemporary' strings (the cheaper hofners) have a green end but I can't find what kind of green. As you can see in the pic, these are almost neon green/yellow.
    Thanks for your help!

    My apologies. Right you are. Any guess on a brand? Do you deal with anything that looks like these? Thanks.

    I think I have a set that came on an old 67 Fender Coronado. I am not sure what they are. :(
