Stock Strings on Skyline?

  1. Hi, pardon the alliteration in the title ;). I played a Lakland Skyline 44-01 fretless a while back and loved the strings. They felt and sounded like nickels to my hands/ears, felt a bit tense and oozed tone. Maybe it was just the bass? Most likely, but in my experience I've never found fretless strings that felt right. Either they had too much mwah (steel and nickels, mostly light gauge) or not enough character (flatwounds, mostly heavy but also TI Jazz Flats - the JFs sound amazing on fretted basses though).

    Anyone know what kind of strings come stock on a 44-01 fretless? Thanks.
