    Just got my new Thunderbird Classic IV Pro in beautiful alpine white. The thing sounds fantastic right out of the box and the setup seems right on for me! But....
    All my other basses I have loved Roto 77s on. What I am wondering from other owners is:
    What are these stock strings????? Not quite the feel I usually like but they sound good.
    And.....anyone put a set of 77s on one and can tell me if they liked them?
    Just trying to decide if I want to change them or not, despite the fact they are totally
    different types of strings.

    I picked up the same bass about 2 months ago. I ended putting the 77's on and a hipshot bridge I salvaged off my old epibird.
    Had to do a truss rod adjustment. Big difference on tension, but tbh I'm probably going to switch them over to nickel low riders or sunbeams pretty soon. The tone is already so dark the flats take it over the top for me.
