Re: Flatwound strings?

More on the subject. The half round were great, but the lack of wound G made me crazy each time a chord went out of tune, especially those maj7 with root on the 6th string. Daddario has half round 12s with wound G but the total tension is simply too much for an acoustic guitar. Bottom line, back to ...
