  • Extra Slinky

    As reviewed by Adam on 12/30/2009

    These strings were the best strings I ever used and will be the only ones I use now. These strings are perfect for blues, soloing, bending, and about everything else. I even tried out finger tapping on these strings and it sounded great and it was very comfortable so these strings really are great for everything. And if you have a Les Paul, these strings are perfect for them. Buy these strings and you will not be sorry.

    As reviewed by guitarplayer1703 on 7/26/2010

    I've played with many different brands and none of them can hold a candle to these ones. not only do they sound absolutly amazing they outlast other strings too, and for being .8 gauge I thought that was amazing. I hope you feel the same way aobut these strings as I do. rock on...
