I posted this question on the Jazz Guitar Forum last night, but thought I would post it here as well.  I was poking around on the Gibson website and saw these nickel flatwounds: Gibson | Flatwound Electric Guitar Strings Has anyone out there tried them? 

Also, the package says "Flatwound Nickel", but the ad says, "stainless steel wrapped".  I assume they're talking about the core being stainless steel. Thanks!

Look again at the blurb -

"Gibson Flatwound Electric Guitar Strings are precision-wound with flat, stainless steel ribbon wire...."

I haven't tried them unfortunately!

So where is the nickel, do you think, if not in the ribbon?

It will be a nickel core.  They could be pretty good strings but expensive at $24.99; then again all flat- or tape-wound strings cost more these days.

Best wishes!
