I happen to like flat wounds strings. So, I use the lightest, D’Addario Chromes, 10 - 48. The 3rd G string is a wound .020. This string cannot be intonated in a Wilkinson trem-lock bridge. I don’t understand why, technically, and I think this is a problem with all wound G strings. I can come clo...
