There have been persistent questions regarding the proper strings for the Jaguar Baritone custom. Initially, it was said to use the 5350 Bass VI stainless strings but they did not seem to match the OEM strings on the Jaguar. The biggest difference that I could see was that the Bass VI strings have the big, bass-style rivets and the Jaguar strings have smaller rivets. The Bass VI strings are also cut for a 30" instrument and I believe that they are too thick to go inside the tuner. In the interest of truth, justice and six-string bassists everywhere I called Fender and behold, they are no longer listing the Bass VI set as fitting the Jag Baritone but instead are going to import and market the OEM Japanese strings. There is also an Ernie Ball set (made for the Silhouette) that is close, although lighter gauged.
