Word to the wise though, beware of the wound g (if that's the route you go) as I have had several unravel on me.

If it's the round core that unraveled, you are meant to put a bend in them before cutting them, which is easy with vintage fender tuners.

I use pyramids on one of my strats warms up the sound and smooths it out but my main strat doesn't need them and I prefer normal D'addario's on that one for the extra snap in the bass.

Perhaps we guitarists are less fussy than violin players. I stock Thomastik flatwound guitar strings but haven't actually tried them either.
Is that the Family Music Store? Got the Jazz Swing set in October. Do you have the 12-50 set in stock? They are way better than the d'addario chromes.
Got these back in stock (12's only):
