I have Bowery Pine with non-trussrod fir neck that has flats on it. Originally, I asked Rick his opinion about putting D'Addario 12-52 flats on it and he told me the neck would be fine. Granted, it's one of his DD necks. They sounded great...big, full and clean almost jazz box sound. Later I changed to a set of Thomastik-Infeld Jazz Swing JS110, 10-44 that I also like. They are still on the guitar. For me, flats on a Tele have a jazz/woody/clean sound and also you can get that Luther Perkins Rockabilly kinda sound.
