Pale blue silk windings?

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by manco3, Aug 23, 2001.


  1. I got these strings on a used Precision I bought and I love them. But they are dying. Unfortunately, I have no idea what they are. They have pale blue silk windings at both ends of the strings and the ball is brass colored.
    Anybody have any ideas?

    Thanks a bunch

    Or Zon strings, they're light blue, though not really pale.

    Theyre most likely Fenders.They came new on my Squier,and I bought a few sets after that too.Nice strings,imo.Still got an old set around that I carry as spares.
