Looking for good match to Ric strings as supplied with new 4003.

  1. Any suggestions folks?

    I prefer lighter gauge strings, live in the UK, but could order from Guitar Parts Resource site if not available here.

    Cheers guys.

    The strings on your 4003 are nickel roundwounds with a guage of 45,55,75,105. It's almost impossible to find a packaged set with those identical guages. You'll have to make up the set out of singles, or go with a set that's close.
    On my 4001, I like the Rotosound SM-66, they're 40,60,80,100. or you might like the RS-66LC set, 40,60,75,95.
    They're also available in Nickel if you don't like stainless.
    They're made in the UK, so maybe they're less expensive
    for you.

    Good Luck
  3. Cheers Slug,

    That's a big help!
