If you live by the mantra that lighter is better when it comes to strings, then this selection of .008 gauge electric guitar strings will definitely be right up your alley. Tons of guitarists swear by light strings to power their bends and vibratos, and it doesn't get any lighter than this lineup filled with .008 and even the odd .007 set like the Dunlop Reverend Willy's Electric Guitar String Set - Extra Light. It may not be the biggest category in the world of strings, but for those of us who like to play it fast and nimble, there's no doubt that the string sets found here are by far the best candidates to get the job done.

Choosing the right set of .008 strings for you is going to depend, of course, on what you want to get out of them. If you're looking to replicate the tone of your favorite guitar hero, maybe that means a set of signature strings? That brings us back to the Reverend Willy's sets, which were designed by Dunlop in collaboration with Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top. Another suggestion would be the Fender Yngwie Malmsteen Signature Electric Guitar Strings, which, like Malmsteen himself, need no introduction - if you've heard his work, then you already have an idea what these strings are capable of.

If you're more concerned about materials than names, make sure you don't miss Ernie Ball's lineup as well. Their line of "Slinky" strings are some of the most popular light-gauge strings around, and they've taken it to the next level by introducing exotic alloys in sets like the titanium-reinforced Ernie Ball 3125 Coated Electric Extra Slinky Guitar Strings, and the long-lasting Ernie Ball 2725 Cobalt Extra Slinky Electric Guitar Strings.

There are, of course, lots of other options, so feel free to choose whatever works for you! Maybe the D'Addario NYXL series has what you're looking for, or maybe you play a 50th Anniversary 12-string Gibson SG, in which case the GHS Boomer 12 String Extra Light Electric Guitar Set will have you covered. In the end, nobody but you can decide which strings are best for your personal instrument and playing style, so go ahead and experiment! As long as you like 'em light, there's definitely a set of .008 gauge electric guitar strings that's right for you.
