I liked them so much on the arch top, I experimented with D'Addario Chromes on my flat tops. It's only been flat wounds on the flat tops ever since.

You probably already explained 121, but what are the advantages of the flat wounds? Thanks....

Elixir polyweb 13/56's are making my X30 sound like a symphony orchestra. Amazing.

"Hey Alex

We ship the guitars with 0.012 gauge strings so yes the 0.013s would definitely add more
power to the overall sound I use 13s myself, but a large number of our customers find them too
much on the fret hand, so we ship them with 12s.
