Default TSI Plectrum AC112 Question

I was going to purchase these strings but was gun shy on the .59 thickness of the 6th string, so went with AC111 instead.

Has anyone had any issues with the 6th string (.59), fitting properly into the nut?

Depends on your specific guitar obviously but I currently have the 13- 61 set on one of my guitars as a trial without any issue. Just depends on how your nut is cut I guess.

...more problems at the bridge getting the pins to fully seat, especially with the silk wrap.

I swapped from Plectrums to Newtone Heritage - also low tension strings. They do a set 13 - 55 that might work for you.

But if you can get a set to fit, the sound of the low E on the TI Plectrums is a thing of beauty.

I put the .059 set on my 00-17 Authentic and they sound great—but the low E barely fit in the tuner hole (Stew Mac Restoration tuners). Also I was expecting the A D and G strings to be flat wound, but only the D string is on this set (I didn’t read the fine print).
