    I bought some and they won't fit if you string through the body. I ended up buying the Lakland nickels. Sound and feel fine, $22 off the site.

    I suppose you might lose some, there is some debate as to how much. I think it depends on several other factors also. If you don't string through the body, they should fit. The b string was a bit short, the outer winding ended just as the string got to the nut. EADG were ok though.

    Anybody else have some experience here?
