    Ok. I search this forum a lot. I know Jaco used Rotosound Swing 66. But I never found the answer to...

    What gauge did he use?

    (Bonus question: Did he use Ni or SS?)

    Someone here must know this and share this secret with us.

    Wel...it's really no secret. Rotosound Swing Bass 66LD gauges 45 65 80 105 Stainless Steel. I don't think that Rotosound offered a nickel version back then. So what do I win?
