    Just grabbed it, has Mojotone 70's Clone Pickups, maple fretboard and probably either an Ash or Alder body, it's wood grain with a clear coat. Bass sounds great. I want to learn 70's funk/disco and 80's Brit pop ala Duran Duran. What's a good string and gauge?

    Rotosound Swing66, what was used in those days and what Taylor used (also he used the Piano String Design by Rotosound, exposed core, but a bit different).

    I currently have Rotosound swing 66 on the same bass with some Nordstrand 60s wind pickups and it sounds great.
