    Hi everyone, cheers from Spain, just joined the list!!!
    I´ve recently bought a secondhand 2year old ( or so) Cort A6 ( six string bass, slightly different to the 02´s A6.

    Does anybody know wich 6 string set (brand/model?), MEDIUM OR ROUND WOUND, as Dáddarios, is the one that has
    each string end( top, at the headstock) wrapped in a different color?, for
    example maybe C-black and others, blue,yellow,green ( i don´t recall exactly),
    also it has a Tappered B,and at the bridge all the strings are wrapped in electric light blue ´wool¨

    Somebody told me that could be dean markleys, Blue steels, but nobody in spain can
    figure it out as far as I know.The guys at the stores and the former owner
    have no idea.Remember that spain is no Sam Ash or guitar center, so seldom
    six string basses are sold.Also i contacted the online salesman at DM, but
    only the blesteeles were available for 6str, and he wasn´t shure about
    that ¨matching¨.

    This particular question concerns me because the bass sound great, has good
    intonation & feel and so far I don´t want to change tension on the neck if
    possible, messing with other strings.
    if for someone this rings a bell, please make me know

    Thanks a lot, Raúl
