Don't buy these for a Bigsby-equipped guitar!
I've used quite a few different flatwound strings and thought I'd give these a try on my 2011 White Falcon reissue.

They rate a resounding "meh".

They have a nice feel; very smooth (obviously) and the tension feels quite low - yet stable. Sustain is "ok" - not bad but seems lower than many flats. But that works for my use.

However - the "D" string barely gets one complete wind around the tuner post and the "A manages only about 1 1/8 winds. Apparently they want to save money by supplying the bare minimum. They don't appear very secure, and it made it very difficult to string the guitar.

If it was just one string I'd think it was an error - but with more than one being short it's obviously intentional.

I won't buy their strings again.
