Well I know this is an old thread, but I bought a set of Joe's Wicked 1 strings in May. Did a 70/30 split of flo green and black. By the end of July all the black had frayed or completely broke on the string and two buis cables. Joe said he had others with the same problem and said it was that spool of black and would get me some new strings and cables out asap. He still has yet to do so. Won't answer phone calls, wont return text messages or emails. Paypal won't let me dispute the charge because its over 45 days now.
