Never could get flats to sound good to my ear. Had cause to string my old P up with Chromes the other day. Played through my SVT/fridge and dayum. Sounds great. I don't know how it will be in a band context and I have serious reservations as to it being cool with my main band, but I think I'll keep them on the P for a bit. Always sounded crappy to me through SS, but that SVT did something to it.
