Now I have the strings. However, I've got a pair of pickups showing up in about a week or two (I hope) from Bill Lawrence, and I figure it'd be stupid to put on the new strings before the pickups arrive. Don't want to have to take them off again to install the pups and have to re-string. Argh. Arghfully yours, rooster. NOTE: Edited the emoticon; we'll see if it takes.
