MSV EVO tends to be a bit less harsh when blended with synthetics.
My mistake, apologies to guts-and-glory. I noticed strings were not the same but they both looked like multis

That explains why I didn't hate the strings, as I usually do hate full multi string beds.

But now it looks like I may have to go to full poly or maybe higher tension or string gauge...though from what I read MSV Focus Evo is very elastic, so possibly my regular poly (Hyperion) with NXT2 on mains may work out better.
Pure Control Tour: leather+og, 5g lead up top, 16L poly @ 52lbs = 12.68oz
