Dont make it bad.....
And the full EC pickguard with the active mid-boost requires some routing of the body.
It needs a battery cavity routed next to the spring cavity, and a cutout on the top for the board.
Currently out of stock at Fender, but likely available from other vendors.
Flatwound or Roundwound strings - which do you prefer?
For bass players too.
Welcome to the forum. I use D'addario NYXL 9-42.
from the Description, I would say I have roundwound on all my guitars
Anyone use DR Blues? I bought some for my Epi SG... haven't been able to put them on yet.
I see my local shop has .10 -.46. Saturday I'll pick up a set .
I've been using nothing but DR Pure Blues 9-46 for the last couple of years.
Typically, most guitar players use round-wound. Generally it's just jazz players that use flats, though every now and then you'll find someone who plays solid-body, rock guitar who uses flats... but it is not common at all.
'blues' in its name is what made me reach for a pack.
The article said flatwound help with sliding noise. True?
They do, but it is a totally different tone.
It is a very mellow "jazzy" tone.
D'Addario used to make (may still make them?) half-rounds, which retain most of the tone of conventional strings, but do reduce string noise, and they are a bit easier on the fingers for beginners.
I used them the first few months while I was learning back in the 70s, but since then, the only thing that doesn't get conventional round wound is the D'Angelico Archtop jazz box.
When I plug my SG into my amp, sometimes there's a crack or pop.
Nothing like this happens when my strat is hooked up.
The amp and cables are Fender brand. Do I need to buy a Gibson cable?
