I would suggest you at least try a set of 80/20's. Not all guitars or all ears will agree with them, but i have found that on many guitars after using them once it's really hard to go back to phosphor. They have a certain sound i find on many guitars just sound more natural while they make phosphor sound sorta contrived. I don't know how else to put it. Plus i find earthwood 80/20 at least last so long i literally don't have to change them for a year if i don't play a heck of a lot. Other 80/20's not so much. And the earthwoods are dirt cheap too at about $5 a set, so i'd say give em a try before you just blindly surrender to phosphor.
