    When I bought my '70s Ibanez Les Paul Custom lawsuit bass, it had some great strings (which I'm still using). I'm trying to figure out, or at least narrow down which brand they are. They are regular round-wound strings, but the end-ball hardware on all 4 is black. The Guitar Center guys are stumped. Thanks in advance!

    I dunno. What color are the silks, or are there silks at all. To me, so far they sound like Black Diamonds which (I believe) have black ball ends, and also come in regular rounds apart from coated.
