Worth the money
Used the 14-55 flatwound set extensively on my '73 strat. Had them on for about a year. Tone is amazing, the intonation of the string is amazing. TI puts so much effort into their strings and it is very obvious. These are meant to be top quality strings, they perform to a level that you can't find for $5 a pack. They are a higher tension string, and although very smooth are not as smooth as a black nylon string. Tone is fat, but clear. Strings change later in their life, become more Thuddy than they were when they were rich, solid while young. Sustain is excellent, intonation is perfect.
ProsPerfectly crafted string, best sound out of any string I have heard. Smooth string, high tension.
ConsHigh cost, shorter life span, compared to black nylons. After 3months on they noticeably "aged"... become thuddier, muddier, and sustain decreased. Still played beautifully, and had beautiful sound nonetheless. Like I said earlier, I used them for nearly 9months into their old age.

Got the 14's
What an unusual set of strings as far as thickness goes. What was George thinking? I know exactly what he was thinking? Evenness of tone. Wow. I have tried, without exaggerating, at least 8 different brands of strings with probably 3 different gauges to each brand (acoustic, electric, archtop (jazz)). So, say, roughly 25 different sets of strings. No other set of strings is so well balanced. None. Its all about tone and in this case the best 'balance' across the strings money can buy. These strings are for Jazz, chording, finger picking and struming.... If you play 13's already you will have no problem with the 14's.
ProsSuperbly balanced.
ConsTook longer than average to stretch. And as with most Thomastik strings they sound better the next day.

Poshy string for Poshy Guitars
the archtop string...if your play n on a plywood archtop you'll feel much better after throwing these on with a good set up. If your archtop is solid wood and not that ikea stuff you owe it to yourself once to get em on your guitar. But you'll realize you'll have to talk yourself out of buying them again.
Proslast a long time
Consa lil pricy...maybe cause the name on it?haha

The Sound of Jazz Guitar
I use GB14s and I get great fat even tone! I am now getting the best tone out of my PRS Hollow Body II ever. It has turned my once anemic guitar into a tone monster, After all it is the string at the core of guitar tone. IMHO these are simply the best Jazz Strings on the planet. Totally worth the money!!!!
ProsThe tone and feel are awesome.
ConsNothing to dislike.

Flat Wound T.I.'s on a Dreadnaught
The feel and sound of these strings are well worth the price... even at full retail! After playing them you'll hate to play anything else. I put them on an accoustic Martin Dreadnaught and they are amazing.

They hold pitch well and i have noticed the intonation is great all the way to the 12 fret..I was unsure about spending the money but I am glad that i took a chance on these strings. these strings are REGAL !! Oh and did i mention gold B & E string :) REGAL BABY
