Several questions, really: I came upon a NICE '62 Jazz reissue made by Squier (Vintage Modified) which I love. Round-wound strings. This thing has a very bright tone and the strings feel unusually scratchy/coarse. I have heard that stainless strings are brighter, and that they wreak havok on frets and fingers. So....I am thinking these might be stainless strings. The bass is in virtually unplayed condition, so I wonder if these VM basses were shipped with stainless strings. And I am also wondering if there is a way to make a positive ID of stainless strings. Maybe I should hold them next to the strings mentioned below, and see if there is a substantial color difference in the metals. I have a set of (I believe) non-stainless round-wounds that I removed from my Fender Jazz (MIM) in favor of D'Addario half-rounds (or ground-wounds or whatever they call 'em). FWIW, I've decided I do not like them, and will likely stick to round-wounds. Anyhoo......can those used non-stainless round-wounds be put onto this Squier with good results?
