I've used Luxe Bumblebees in the past and have always been satisfied with them. For this particular guitar tho I want to use Black Beauties. Are the RI Luxe Bees and Beauties the same cap, is it just a cosmetic thing? I know the old Bees, like the Luxe RI's, were paper and oil. I've always heard the original Black Beauties were Mylar or some such thing. I've seen the RI Bees and Beauties advertised as both being paper and oil. Does anyone know for sure. Also, what will an .015 in the neck do for me that a .022 wouldn't or rather what makes some prefer this? Lastly, does anybody have a source for these/ The guys I've used in the past don't sell them anymore. Thanks for your help.
