Hello Francis,

The brand is called "Olympia Strings".
Here's a link: http://strängaom.se/oscommerce_st/catalog/...?products_id=89

That's a swedish site, and I'm not sure if they can be bought anywhere else.

Marcus, I love the way you have stock pickups, an old guitar and cheap strings yet still sound fabulous! Just goes to show that most of the mojo is in the playing!
