with what strings comes a MM sterling?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by flea2010, Aug 21, 2003.

  1. hi,

    I'd like to know what kind of string are on my new MM Sterling. Does anyone know what kind of strings they put on it in the factory? or another way how to find out?

  2. I'd say Ernie Ball strings would be a good guess!:D
  3. Yeah...I agree,I think Ibanez has a "connection" with ernie ball too.
  4. sure they are eb-strings, but what kind and what gauge?

    Probably Slinky's medium-light (the green package).
  6. I'm pretty sure Sterlings come from the factory with 45-100 Slinkys. (pink package)

    That's what my 'Ray came with, and any Sterlings I've played felt as though they had the same gauge set on them.

    I could be wrong.

    That's the gauge I meant, 45-100 (this is the gauge that came on my SR5 with an added 130). Aren't these in the green package? Or maybe it's just the 5-string set? I'm confused now!

    I checked on EB's site, we're both right, Mike: the 45-100 4-string set comes in the pink package and the 5-string set in a green package. I thought the 4-string set was coming in the same package! :)

    Great minds think alike :D

    A cold, amber liquid (or two) for both of us!!! :D

    Mike :cool: Man, it's good to be back online!
