I bought my first good bass in 1970 which was a sunburst/tort Fender Precision with covers and mute. It came with flatwounds like just about everything did back then but does anyone here know the gauges and the brand? Would it have been a .100 E string like nowadays or would it have been a .105? It was not a huge string, that I do remember and I want to say that they had blue silk wraps like modern Fender strings but am not sure. This bass had beautiful low action when I first picked it up, in fact I had to raise it I was so accustomed to the cheap Japanese piece of doo doo I had had for a few years.
