Thread Name: Black Diamond Strings
Subject: RE: Black Diamond Strings
Here's another checking in as a learner on a Stella with Black Diamond strings, flat wounds if I could get `em... and I usually could. My Stella had a cowboy motif paint job from the late 40s on it and was my Dad's learner too at one time.
The action was so high on that bastard I'm still amazed I ever stuck with it. Of course, after a couple of years, I graduated to borrowing my Dad's grown-up guitar, a Gibson LG-1, also strung with Black Diamond flats. Needless to say, the Stella got retired after that (it was long before I knew about doing a set-up to adjust the action). I have no idea where it is now.
