    Those were, I believe, none other than Rotosounds.
     
  4. I think it was Rotosound Jazz flatwounds on the Jazz bass, and Rotosound Swing bass roundwounds on the 52 precision used on Black Dog, and on the Alembics. he also used/currently uses Rotosound Piano string design roundwounds with the exposed core over the bridge.
