Everyone will have their favorite (mine is the Curt Mangan Fusion Matched string) so this will be another case of personal preference. Start with the 80/20s and have fun in the search.

i have used the Elixers on my Taylor 414ce, and keep a couple of sets for back-up, so i'll probably give a set a try on my P-09.

and yes sir, a nice cup of strong black coffee surely hits the spot.

I think the problem with describing strings in terms of brightness are... I think PB tend to have an extended upper end that I would refer to as brilliance, whereas 80/20's are punchy and in your face. Many people say 80/20's are brighter but I think even though PB's have a flatter frequency response they have more going on in the true high frequencies where 80/20's roll off above the upper mid's(2-4k).
