What strings did Gibson use on their 1976 Thunderbirds?

    I recently bought a '76 Bicentennial Tbird, and am wondering what strings Gibson originally strung them up with.

    They were Gibson brand roundwound. I bought one of my '76 birds new (the one in my avatar), and I'm pretty sure they were nickel. I know for certain they were roundwounds.
