: I just picked a Godin acoustic/electric fretless , but the flatwound strings have very little depth to them. Can anybody suggest a "ground-wound" string or
: round wound that would be bright enough , but doesn't chew through the fret board?

Hey, PJ,

I've been playing fretless for a while. I've found that the best strings to use are the Super round, like Dean Markley SR2000. They won't really tear up the fingferboard like Roto Sounds. I agree with El Pajaro, though, that it's worth while getting your neck coated with epoxy or cyaoencryalate (crazy glue). Epoxy seems to last longer, but cyanoencryalate is easier to do.

Good Luck,


Rob
