A few posters have expressed this sentiment, so I'd might as well add my
voice to the list.

I LOVE all the sounds a guitar makes - the full resonance of the strings
with all their overtones and interactions, beats etc., the sound of
fingers of both hands, picks, fingertips, fingernails, taps, slaps, pps,
fret noise, AND wound-string squeaks.

I've got a set of flat-wounds on my ES175, and though they are
reasonable on that guitar, which I rarely play, there is a lifelessness
to them that actually makes that guitar a different instrument.

Take away the breath on a flute or airy sax and what you've got left is
the sound of a synthesizer, and a poor one at that.
