Being a bass player for as long as i remember, I got the itch for playing guitar again. Im working with Mickey Bakers book and the chord changes sound really pretty. Just got a good deal on an American Pro Telecaster and was wondering about the strings. I think the guitar currently has 10's, same as my strat. I want to change the gauge/type to something mellower so i was thinking of going with either 11 or 12 flatwounds with possibly a wound G. Im thinking the heavier strings would fare well with the tall narrow frets as far as intonation....being somewhat a "new" player, it might come into play. Would there be an issue with the nut on the guitar? Would the wound g fit in the slot? Any suggestions? Thanks.
