Hey thanks, man. I will not stay with bronze. Don't like the sticky black fingers nor the string noise. Same really goes w steel. So I am researching various nickel plated half round or ground wound to be smoother feeling, sounding, but still have some highs. If that fails, I may give in and go TI Flats which I know will sound good even though I wasn't really going for the flat sound.
