Re: Christmas came early- Weber Bighorn oval hole arrived
I'm really happy you are enjoying the Bighorn. The strings that are currently on it are the ones STE put on when it was visiting them a few months ago. I am not sure what they are. I assumed they were standard D'Add's or something along those lines.
I had put on a set of D'Add FT's and they sounded phenomenal. I didn't set the nut up for the wound AA course, so I took them off after a little project I used them for was completed.
I think you will certainly lose some sustain using the flatwounds, but the character of the tone you will get, especially from the 5th fret on up will most likely be pretty darn amazing.
The mando will be Jazz Prima, for sure.
That's My Blah, Blah, Blah on the Matter, Anyway...
