My new bass is kind of an oddball with highly flamed ribs, mildly flamed back, a dovetail mortise and, an integral bass bar. My luthier told me the dovetail made it more Czech than German school.

String ID

I played on some strings yesterday that had orange with black spiral at the ball ends, and a different pastel color for each string at the peg end. Anyone know what these might be?
