Bought a Fender American Standard Jazz 5 string bass about two weeks ago. Love everything about it. Kind of curious as to what strings others are using who have the same bass. Right now the stock Fender strings are on the bass and I must say that for me the string to string and overall tension is perfect. For all I know they may be the perfect strings for this particular bass. I wouldn't mind trying something else as long as it doesn't throw it all out of whack. I read somewhere here that these basses are a bit fussy as to what strings go on them. Thanks for your time.
