What do the P and W mean?
I keep seeing p and w in some of the string gauges. Example:
What does this mean? I have been wondering cause I see it next to the G string gauge a lot... does this mean it is wound? I've really been searching for strings that include a wound G string, because I hate the sound of a plain G string, expecially when doing power chords. Someone help please? Thanks!
Plain and wound.

Wound g string
I've just started using D'Addario EXL110W (the smallest gauge is 10-46 and this includes a wound 3rd string. The reasom that I have started with these is to
address a string response imbalance inherent in vintage oickups.
You will find this string more difficult to bend at the lower frets
They are available on the web, Stringbusters have them
