These are the best flatwounds. I have them on everything from strats to SGs to my custom aluminum guitar. They sound crystal clear, are easy to play, and there's less intonation work to be done because the g string isn't wound. I like that they are light enough where there isnt too much of an audible distinction between the wound and plain strings. They say not to put them on solid bodies right on the package, but I haven't ran into any problems. I also use locking tuners, so I have yet to have any unwind on me.
ProsEasy to play Easy to intonate Sound great Cheaper than similar sets
ConsHard to find

.009 Flatwounds

I have started using JustStrings LaBella .009 Flatwounds on my Parker Fly Mojo. The Parker guitars are very bright sounding, and a lot of what I play needs some more mellow tones. I also like the comfort and no-squeek of flatwounds.

The LaBella flatwound .009 stainless strings have worked very well for me. They sound more mellow than round wounds, but at .009 you can still get a blues or rock sound out of them. It's just a matter of adjusting your guitar's tone.

These professional Jazz Guitar Strings are made to fit archtops and hollow-body guitars, therefore are NOT suitable for standard solid body guitars with 25.5” or 24.75” scale like a Stratocaster or Les Paul model.

Wound length of each strings is 36″ (distance from ball-end to silk); only the silk portion should wrap around the tuning post

La Bella ELECTRICS
Flat Wound Stainless

"The original set design for electric guitar, the Flat Wound Stainless series are the first ribbon-wire wrapped strings. Developed in 1940 by La Bella, these strings are manufactured for all types of electric pick-ups. With a high magnetic content for increased electronic output, their smooth surface eliminates finger noise and string squeaks. Flat Wound Stainless sets have a very bright sound, a smooth feel and a long playing life. They are the first choice of many Jazz, Pop and Country guitarists."
