ditto to the above. + raised string height to about G @ 8mm, E @ 11mm. for me this is a very comfortable level with guts, which could be played even higher. their low tension and bouncy feel lets you play for hours without getting that raw feeling in the fingers. playing unamped, i think guts need more room to get the desired volume, but as noted the added string height also affects the overall sound and string response, the snap.
