    My local luthier suggested I try a set of 12s on my 325, which is tuned to Eb. Currently have DR Pure Blues 11s on there and find myself wanting a little more resistance to bends, I love everything about the DR strings mind you.

    Every set I look at features a wound G string, is there a regular produced set without this? Or do I need to look at custom sets?

    Thanks. :drink

    Sorry I can't really help with this one BUT I am also a lover of DR...I know the only 12 gauge DR strings are in the Tite Fit series (I prefer Pure Blues 11s) and they feature the wound 3rd.

    I think that Fender Super 250s don't have a wound G string...check this site out. It may be able to help.

    Cheers fellas, reckon I'll give the EBs a blast. I might even buy a set of DRs with the wound G and see how they feel.
