Hi Shorty. The strings are made by D'Addario. I would bet that they are the Pro Steels EPS490s. I have been using those the past few years and really like them.

D'Addarios are the only strings I know of that are color coded. It's the ball ends that are colored.

They make a couple different sets. Pro Steels and the newer NYXL's that are getting a lot of chatter. Look at them here on b0b's strings button top of page. I think he has both sets.

Just put on my second set of 490's this afternoon, soon as I changed out the pu to a 10-1. Excellent strings.
