  1. hello,

    I'm 56 years old and I recently bought a fender precision bass california series. Ialready own a fender sidekick bass 50 for ten years.

    Who can tell me which strings give the sound like teh bass solo of Jet Harris from The Shadows in the song "Nivram" I know, it is a very old number (just like me) but ther must be a bass player who has the same age (ahum) or is still young but knows the song.
     
  2. I'm 54...I'd bet flatwound strings and probably Fenders flatwounds.
