I'll play with the p/u. I don't know that I will ever go back to round wound strings and may even try these flat wounds on an acoustic flat top. I heard that I may lose projection, so I am going to think about it a while and may ask a few experts (like those here) first.

PS If you don't want to invest in yourself, why should anyone else even bother to try?
