    oh wow I didn't even think about him using the tape wounds on the rick! I wonder what songs he used them on

    He may have, but there are articles of some decades ago that he (meaning: his staff) conducted a global search for OEM NOS Maxima strings until the development of Optima RB's. I don't know if he has ever used Optima RB's on his 4001, but it is a possibility.

    Thank you for the very detailed response! I without a doubt be putting the Optima RB flats on, and I guess I will have to be happy with in the "ball park." Happy playing!
