I'm restringing my guitar with 11 - 52 's and this set has two G strings. I can have either:


.018 Unwound

or

.020 Wound


Which should i put on!??!?

I've never had a wound G string before. Can anyone tell me the pros and cons here??

I'm guessing the Wound wouldn't be as good for tapping. Anyone know? What about pinch harmonics?

I'd go with the unwound. I find it easier to do all sorts of harmonics (And there are craploads on the G string) and alot easier for tapping. What's to stop you from trying both, though?

wound would be cool if u wanted a more heavier tone on the g string, but i guess if u wanna do tapping and stuff id use the other 1

how about put the wound on if you have never tried it before and if you dont like it change it to the unwound

Ahh, the voice of reason.

I can see the appeal of having a wound one, but I personally don't like it. It's a little more difficult to play a full-step bend compared to the unwounds I'm used to.
