Overview

B.B. King Signature gauges: 10-13-17p-32w-45w-54w.

B.B. plays with a style that matches his intensity, and every note he plays has something vitally important to say. This unique string set is B.B.King's own special gauge, meant to give your guitar a firm yet extremely playable feel. The pure nickel wrap yields exceptional tone from the lows all the way to the highs. The premium Swedish steel "hex" core means your guitar tunes up fast and stays in tune longer.

All legendary series strings from Gibson feature a distinctive silk wrap at the ball end that helps eliminate any undue wear and harmonics. Whether you play blues, rock, jazz, or country, you won't find better strings for your musical needs.

Comments about Gibson SEG-BBS B.B. King Signature Electric Guitar Strings:

I put the strings on a old mark 2 from walmart. Not the best guitar for these strings. the strings tho have a very smoth and mellow sound. they do the BB king name justice.

Sound Like B.B.

By Marvin Fourte

from Justice, Illinois

Comments about Gibson SEG-BBS B.B. King Signature Electric Guitar Strings:

I have been skeptical about these strings because I play jazz as well as blues. I will admit that if you plan to be doing any Joe Pass or Kenny Burrell, the top three strings might sound flimsy when you are figure picking or picking with a Dunlap Jazz III. But we're not buying these strings for those guys. These strings play B.B. King's sound excellently. I went from a regular set of .10 Gibson Vintage Reissue to these and the heavier bottom strings really do fatten out your chords and bottom notes. The light strings are great for those whole step or whole step and a half bends that B.B. King enjoys. FEATURES: Fatter and bottom sound on chords and an authentic sounding B.B. King tones when compared to other brands of strings. Quality & Reliability: The strings and durable and they last. I have VERY sweaty hands and even when the strings lose their shine around certain frets, the tone is still as amazing as when you open the pack. So for my sweaty finger friends, don't be afraid! (Never broke a string through all the bending) Look & Feel: If you are familiar with Gibson strings or Gibson Vintage Reissue more specifically, then you will already be familiar with the amazing quality of these strings. The coating does not come off. The strings do not lose their color quickly and they have a very nice silver/nickel shine to them. Stop thinking about them and just go get them today!

    Comments about Gibson SEG-BBS B.B. King Signature Electric Guitar Strings:

    Any guitar I have put these on sound awesome. Les Paul's, Strats, Ibanez and Jackson. Give any guitar thick, deep and rich sound. Only down side is the pain developed from playing thicker than usual strings but no pain no gain. I play from Blues to metal and they sound great in both genres.

      It's the perfect combination of Telecaster and Stratocaster. Both a Tele and a Strat pickup, contour body, and a humbucker with coil tap switch. Great guitar for all styles of playing.
