Yesterday a friend of mine arrived from Atlanta and brought me a package with a set of JF344 to my squier fretless and an EMG combo (two 40DC + BQC, which will be reviewed soon on the respective forum ). It was about 2:00am when I finished the p/u installation and I decided to put those austrian slicks on the fretless... WOW! I've been reading a lot of positive reviews about them, and I have to agree with all of them, these strings are amazing. My first impressions: - I played them for only 20 minutes (it was 2:00am, mkay? ), but could hear a lot of textures and colours I'm not used to from other flats - It was strung with Fender 7150s pure nickels (40-95), so I couldn't find the characteristic mwah from the rounds, but actually, I didn't missed it at all - I got a lot of response from my touch, a kind of "piezo response". I never got this from the other flats I played. - I didn't feel them floppy at all... Ok, I play light strings, but see no difference from the 40-95 7150s. - They even slapped pretty well. Happy Happy Joy Joy!!!
