    I own a 4 string P/J which I bought used. I have no idea which strings it came with, but I like them and I would like to get the same set.

    They are probably roundwounds.

    The end of the string that goes to the peghead has no cotton winding.

    The other end of the string (the small metal part around which the string is wrapped around) is coloured. E is gold, A is red, D is black and G is green.

    E: 0.102
    A: 0.085
    D: 0.068
    G: 0.050

    Does anybody recognise these?

    Wow, that was fast. Thanks! How do you know they are nickel though?
  3. I actually don't know for sure. Just an educated guess with 95% probability.

    If you want us to be absolutely right, you should always post pics of the strings both at the headstock and the bridge.

  5. Yup, they do look to me like the ubiquitous XL Nickels.
