    Anyone have strings they feel work particularly well on this instrument? I'm currently using medium-light GHS Pressurewounds (44-102) and they seem pretty good. Must admit I'm curious about the Thomastik Jazz flats, however.

    Thanks!
     
  2. Thomastik Jazz Flats are THE strings - I use them on my Fender Jazz FL, and although they took a bit of getting used to (I find them to be "sticky") they have a really great sound, and I've been very pleased with mine.

    I've heard this before, but I don't think the TI Jazz Flats are "sticky" at all. Maybe my hands are sweatier, but I think they are really smooth. The only adjustment I had to make was because the strings are very flexible.
