Flatwounds

Post by waylon » July 15th, 2017, 6:10 am

I love jazzy tones. Something in style of Martin Taylor.
I know my guitar won't be sounding like His, because I have telecaster Thinline, but I heard that flatwound string are the best for jazz. Is it true?
Which of these sets would You recommend for telecaster?

You may want to consider the Thomastik Infields Jazz strings. Its more toneful (if there's such a word) than others I have used. But it's expensive so I just settle with using Chromes most of the time. These strings are a bit stiff compared to Thomastik but the sound is all there.

I have the Chromes in this Thinline MJT Tele. It kinda reminds me of the guitar you describe you have with you.
