    I put them on my SX fretless P. They, IMHO have a better fretless sound than the D'addarios that came on it. More Mwah less thump. I tried La Bella Flats nickel wound and they were all thump, with hardly any Mwah.

    I'm having buzzing isuses in the first three finger positions of the E and A strings though. I've loosened the truss rod a 1/4 turn and let it set but no relief yet. I'll try another 1/4 turn next.

    I think they are good fretless strings, about what I was expecting out of tape wounds, but I'll probably try the La Bella 760N tape wounds next.
