i've been using elixors 9's *and they're just everything, dare i say it, they almost make the guitar:-)
only joking of course, *i play a 7vwh,
congrats on the fp. *great guitar
these strings are expensive but the last time i had to restring was 1 month ago, and they still play like new.
(literally!) *they are coated with gortex, polyweb stuff that keeps dirt out and tone in, *they're also much smoother as they have no gaps between the windings, *you could almost say it's a flatwound but not quite.
anyway as the guys are saying, *don't stick on one string until you've tried them all, *have fun on your new jem. *they're the best guitar you can buy.
